The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival is celebrating its 25th year next month, and there’s still time to sign up if you’d like to enter one of your homemade hot sauces and salsas.

It costs $20 per entry — $25 for restaurants — and the deadline to register ahead of time is Aug. 19. They do accept submissions the morning of the event between 10 and 11 a.m. Contestants are asked to bring their one-pint entries in sturdy, plastic, disposable containers.

The event will take place at Fiesta Gardens from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, and you can find out more and how to sign up at austinchronicle.com/hot-sauce.
