Events by EventfulThe Sug and Spice: Hot Sauce Festival
With Tabasco just down the road at Avery Island and thousands of gallons of scarlet, searing substitutes being produced all around, you’re in the hot sauce heartland in New Iberia. Fair enough, then, that SugArena at Acadiana Fairgrounds should host the Cajun Hot Sauce festival, its annual tribute to tingling taste buds, with events including a multitude of hot sauces on display and for tasting, a jambalaya cook-off, carnival, arts & crafts, a food festival with a variety of suitably spicy Cajun cuisine, and lots of entertainment. You never know who's bringing the heat to this festival, so come out to vote for your favorite in the "People's Choice" category. 713 Northwest Bypass (Highway 3212). (888) 942-3742 or sugarena.com.
