Gourmet Food and Music Festival Postponed Until 2017
Houston, TX | August 1, 2016:
SauceFest LLC (“SauceFest”) regrets to announce that the gourmet food and music festival’s inaugural run has been postponed until the fall of 2017. The event was originally scheduled to take place October 22-23, 2016 on the streets of East Downtown Houston. The festival is now tentatively scheduled for October 2017.
To ensure that SauceFest 2017 brings the heat, iBurn® is working with Houston’s own Pegstar Concerts to deliver a music lineup that only Pegstar can deliver. The 2-day festival will also feature gourmet food products with heat levels ranging from mild to the world’s hottest, craft beer and liquor brands, local restaurants, cooking demonstrations, and eating competitions.
James “Hot Sauce Boss®” Beck, owner of iBurn® and producer of SauceFest explains the decision to postpone:
“This was a very difficult decision, but after careful consideration we determined that postponement was necessary. We learned the hard way that we chose the wrong firm to assist with the logistics and organization of the festival, and with less than 90 days to go we did not feel the event could be produced at the high level that Houstonians have come to expect from the iBurn® brand. However I want to be very clear. This is a true postponement, not a delayed cancellation. We owe it to our vendors and sponsors, along with the foodies and chileheads of Houston to produce a great event, and that will happen in 2017.”
Future information including the new festival dates and venue will be posted to the SauceFest website saucefestival.com.
