The 15th Annual Pinellas Pepper Fest is back and will test the tastebuds of those brave enough to play with fire.
Starting Saturday, April 9 (10 a.m. – 6 p.m.) through Sunday, April 10 (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.) attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy more than the Florida heat.
This “hot & spicy food show” will host its classic contests such as the Favorite Vendor Hot Sauce competition, the Extreme Lolli Lick-A-Thon sponsored by Intensity Academy, and the Jalapeno Pepper Eating Content.
Local and regional vendors will be serving up a variety of foods such as sauces, salsas, rubs, and more.
An ax-throwing competition hosted by Steel & Stone was also added to this year’s event.
This year’s event will take place at England Brothers Park (5150 81st Ave N. Pinellas Park, FL 33781).
