Exciting Guests

We couldn’t throw a hot sauce event without inviting some of our spicy friends to take part! You never know who’s going to be at Goat Fest!

Where is this magic happening?

Goat Fest is the sizzling sensation right in the heart of Waterloo Region, where hot sauce and craft beer meet the biggest Bavarian festival outside of Germany. 

As you enter the festival grounds at Bingemans, prepare yourself for one of the spiciest experiences Waterloo Region has ever seen. Top hot sauce makers from across Canada and beyond combine with hand-picked breweries, distilleries and food vendors to create an event that’s sure to please even the most discerning of chilli heads and pepper curious folks alike. 

Browse, sample and buy hot sauces ranging from mild to wild from some of your new favourite makers with Canada’s biggest selection of sauce makers that have been featured on the hit YouTube series Hot Ones! 

If that’s not enough, the party continues all night as Bingemans transforms into full Oktoberfest mode featuring a plethora of German beers, spirits, music and a performance by the great David Wilcox.
