Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children 7-18 and kids 6 and under are free. Get your appetite ready, and grab some antacids before heading over to this family-friendly event. (Taylor Grabowsky)

AdThe 29th annual National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show is approaching. The event will feature more than 1,000 different products from the U.S. and around the world for tasting and purchase.

The Fiery Foods Show is the country’s largest gathering of fiery food products and barbecue sauces. The 2016 event welcomed a record number of attendees and organizers of the event expect even more for the 29th annual event. This year the Show will feature a special event called 505 Food Fights, cooking contests pitting New Mexico’s best chefs against each other. In addition, Van Rixel Bros. gelato will be available throughout the show for those who need to beat the heat. There will be tequila presentations and Disc-It demonstrations. The official Fiery Foods Show mascot, Chile the Kid, will return, greeting guests throughout the weekend. 

Tickets for the Fiery Foods Show are (per day) $15 for adults and $5 for youth 18 and younger. Children 6 and younger are free. Advance tickets will be available through Ticketmaster for $12, and at the Sandia Resort and Casino box office. Tickets purchased at the Sandia Box Office have no Ticketmaster fees added. Parking is free. For more information visit
