Hot Fest for Hospice 2013

Since 2003, Hot Fest for Hospice, has been a celebration of great music and great food to raise awareness and funds for local hospice organizations near Rockford, Illinois. Sponsors can donate online through the Community Foundation (Put Hot Fest for Hospice for the Fund Name).

In addition to the live performances, delicious food, and vendors, the event features a food competition where restaurants, businesses and individuals compete to make the best salsa recipe in various categories. And, here's the best part - you get to taste them all and vote for your favorite! There is also a new Hot Fest Hottie beauty pageant. Hot Fest for Hospice 2013 is located at the American Lombardi Club - 209 Olive St Rockford, IL 61107.
