We spoke with Max Born, Owner of Chili Beak & Co-Founder of Sauce Lake City Fest, about the upcoming event. The festival will feature Chili Beak, Salsa Queen, Tonguespank, Bear River Bottling, Homer’s Hot Sauce, Red Rock Salsa & many more. Born states, “We’ve Always been committed to community, which is what we love about doing business in Utah. It’s not the cut-throat attitude, it’s about building bridges.” Creating these collaborative relationships is the foundation of the Sauce Lake City festival. The expo also features a lowrider car show, Guac-Off, live music, spicy cocktails, and fun treats from Harmons & Caputos. If that isn’t enough, a portion of the ticket sales goes to support Wasatch Community Gardens.
