Salsa Tasting Competition!
Public tasting from 12-5pm*

Amateur and professional salsa chefs can compete for fun, prizes, and Salsa Glory in this mouth watering and exciting Salsa Tasting & Competition at The Redwood City Salsa Festival on September 28th from 12-8pm, happening throughout Downtown Redwood City.

A $500 Prize for the "People's Choice" Best Salsa!
Plus winners in these categories:

  • $250 prize and award for "Best Mild" salsa
  • $250 prize and award for "Best Hot" salsa
  • $150 prize and award for "Best Decorated Booth"

Teams can enter the salsa challenge as individuals, or businesses. Salsa will be judged by a qualified panel of judges in the following categories Hot & Mild.

The festival goers will be able to purchase a tasting kit in order to cast their vote for the “people's choice award.”. A qualified panel of judges will judge entries equally based on the following criteria: aroma, consistency, color, appropriate heat level, taste and after-taste. This panel will also judge each team booth for Best Decorated.

* Please note: Teams make a minimum of 6 gallons of salsa, the 5pm end time is our best estimate and is dependent on how much the public tastes!

Fees are $50.00 for Professionals (Caterer/Restaurant) and $50.00 for individual teams. Space is limited, first come, first serve.

Please print & fill out all forms under your category and mail them along with a check to the address on the form.
