It is very important to The Austin Chronicle that the 31st Hot Sauce Festival take the proper precautions to keep everyone in attendance safe. We will be limiting the number in attendance to reduce crowding. All tastings, vendors, and live music performances will be outdoors. All guests will be required to practice social distancing and respect other guests. All guests will be required to wear a mask when not eating, drinking, or social distancing outdoors. All attendees will be asked to answer a health questionnaire (inquiring about symptoms and previous contact with infected persons).
All vendors, Chronicle staff, and bar staff will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing when possible as well.
Hand sanitizer is available at the entrance to and throughout the festival space. Soap & hot water available in the bathrooms for frequent hand washing. Masks/face shields will be worn by all staff. Staff will also regularly wash hands for a minimum of 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
Your health and safety are our top priority, and we are doing everything we can to keep you safe during your visit. By attending this event, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
