Columbus Fiery Foods Festival is on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 2 PM—10 PM at the Columbus Commons. The event will benefit the children’s charity CD102.5 for the Kids and showcase the fiery side of life with restaurants, hot sauce and salsa vendors, and exhibitors from around the country.
The day-long celebration is the second festival collaboration between CD102.5 and MGN.
“We’re looking forward to producing another event together that fills a much-needed void in the
central Ohio festival scene,” said Mike Gallicchio, president MGN. Randy Malloy, president of
CD102.5, echoed Gallicchio’s sentiments and added, “Columbus is such a great foodie city and
a festival celebrating all things hot and spicy has been needed for a long time.”
Festival-goers can expect to satisfy their need for heat by sampling everything from BBQ to salsa to sweet treats with a kick from various restaurants, hot sauce and salsa makers, and other specialty vendors. The event will also feature a market with crafters and artisans.
Guests can also become part of the action by participating in the Local Salsa Competition, Hot
Pepper Eating Contest, and Chili Cook-Off. Contest details will be posted on the Fiery Foods
Festival Facebook Page starting June 1, 2019.
Tickets are required to attend the event and are available starting January 22, 2019 through

engraved fork, festival beer glass, food samples, and 2 (12 oz) beers or 2 nonalcoholic bever-
