SauceFest LLC Announces Postponement of Festival

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:
