Inferno Fest will test the taste buds of the most daring food enthusiasts with the hottest and spiciest foods and beverages.

The festival will highlight creations such as spicy pasta dishes, peppery nuts and popcorn, piquant tacos and salsa, hot wings, and much more! Live music and an array of unique fiery foods will create a fun atmosphere to sample the hottest foods on the North Shore. 








Taking place on JULY 12TH from 4:30pm-9:30pm during the popular Highwood Eveving Gourmet Market, this event will not dissapoint those avid spicy connoisseur. 

AND, those who are really in for a challenge, the Inferno Fest Eating Contest is back as well.  Not all who dared enter this competition in the past walked away the same ever again.  This is truly a challenge for those whom have iron stomachs!!

If you may be worried you can’t handle the heat after expanding your culinary horizons, have no  fear. Milk Angels will be on hand to rescue sweltering mouths with a glass of cold, cool down milk.  For those not in the know, milk interacts with spices to cool taste buds in a way that water or soda cannot.

Yes, we will have everyday non-spicy items for the “Along Came Polly” people too;)
