With the announcement of Weekend of Fire X and our Weekend Warm-Up, we’re ready to showcase the best of the best by re-sharing WOFi Award winners from years past. The list is long, varied, and just as storied as the festival itself. We’re proud to be the Midwest’s largest Fiery Food show 10 years running now, and are already looking for to many, many more.
Papi Joe’s Tennessee Pepper Sauce - A regular winner at Weekend of Fire, Papi Joe’s booth is almost as much of a highlight of the show as his sauces are. Not quite 10 years old yet, he’s still been a part of the Weekend of Fire for a while, and we’re excited to have him back this year! His unique bottle and authentic flavors make his product a can’t miss all year ‘round.
Scotty O’Hotty - Only 5 years old, Scotty O’Hotty - “The Motor City Hot Sauce” - has been making waves throughout the hot sauce world with intense flavor and lots of personality. Last year, his Beer-Bacon Chipotle garnered a WOFi and helped to cement his place as not just a name to watch, but one to share.
CaJohn’s Fiery Foods - If there’s a name that’s synonymous with “hot sauce,” you’d be hard pressed to think of anyone who’s had as much of an influence as CaJohn. He’s been a big supporter of our Weekend of Fire, and one of the very, very few that has been part of the festival from the start. We’re excited to partner with him this year on a special collaborative hot sauce for Weekend of Fire’s 10th anniversary, and can’t wait to share it with everyone.
If you can’t tell, we’re excited for Weekend of Fire and hope that if you haven’t been to the show, you’ll join us this year. We promise, you won’t want to miss it. In the meantime, check out the names we mentioned above (and any others that strike your interest - there’s a lot of them).
