Randy Malloy, president of CD102.5, echoed Gallicchio's sentiments and added, "Columbus is such a great foodie city and a festival celebrating all things hot and spicy has been needed for a long time."

Festival-goers can expect to satisfy their need for heat by sampling everything from BBQ to salsa to sweet treats with a kick from various restaurants, hot sauce and salsa makers, and other specialty vendors. The event will also feature a market with crafters and artisans.
