It’s barely been open two weeks and already Welcome to Bowen Hills is scheduling some major events.

One of the first will be the Hot Sauce and Chilli Festival. Held over two days, the event will showcase some of the best spicy food and hot sauces Brisbane has to offer. Some will even require you to sign a waiver before you taste them. True story.

Local hot-sauce impresarios 13 Angry Scorpions will be in attendance throughout the Saturday and Sunday of the event, while Brat Haus, Mussel Brothers, Mr Burger, King of the Wings and Chef on the Road are among the food vans that will be appearing over the weekend, serving up spicy interpretations of their usual specialties. Welcome to Bowen Hills will be playing its part, mixing up its usual bar offering with a specially created Hot Pocket shot.

You can even contact Welcome to Bowen Hills to sell your own hot sauce, if you think it’s good (hot) enough.

The Hot Sauce and Chilli Festival takes over Welcome to Bowen Hills March 10 and 11. Find out more here.
