    FAQ    

ARE SAMPLES LIMITED?
Unlimited bacon samples? What is this sorcery you speak of? Bacon Fest is an all-inclusive event, granting you samples from beverage and food vendors. We want you to be double fisting throughout the entire day. Bacon in one hand. Beer in the other. It’s hard to maintain a level of double fistedness (we made that word up) when you have to reach for your wallet every couple of minutes. Yeah, we know what you’re thinking. “They thought of everything!” Yes. Yes we did. Oh, water is free too.
THE VIP TICKET INCLUDES A BREW CADDY. WHAT IS IT?
The Brew Caddy is an amazing device that hangs around your neck and holds your beer for you while you stuff your pie hole with the greatest meat known to man. You also look cool wearing it.
IS BACON FEST A TUCSON BASED COMPANY?
Why thank you for asking! Yes, we are a locally based event production company and we truly appreciate your support.
WILL THERE BE A GROUPON OR LIVINGSOCIAL OFFER?
Absolutely not. The only discount offered is from our own pre-sale. You will not see tickets cheaper than what you can buy them for right now. We know other events lower their prices as the event nears, but we don’t believe in punishing those that paid more and paid sooner. It’s not fair.
IS BACON FEST ALL AGES?
Nope. Strollers get in the way, especially the double wide variety, and crying babies can interupt that special moment you will be having with every bite of bacon inspired goodness. If you happen to drop an F’ bomb due to experiencing something amazing, you can rest assured you didn’t have a negative effect on any Bacon Bits who are still learning the English language. Most importantly, if we let in any Bacon Bits, we would have to section off the beer and spirits in a fenced off area, otherwise known as a “beer garden.” We hate those. This a day for adults. You deserve it. Well, maybe you do, but we’re not here to judge you. Only Santa Claus gets to do that.
IS PARKING INCLUDED?
Yes and no. Parking in the neighborhood is free (please respect driveways) , on the lot of the event is $5, but we rather you not drive. We suggest horseback, camelback or UBER use promo code: RBEVENTS. We will have magic carpet parking for those that pefer the friendly skies.
CAN I BRING IN A CHAIR?
Chairs are not allowed. The Fire Marshall is not a fan. He said something about lane obstruction and emergencies. We weren’t really paying attention after we heard, “No.”
WILL THERE BE VEGETARIAN OPTIONS?
No. No. No. This is a day to celebrate bacon, which is made from pork bellies. Veggie Fest will have vegetarian options. The problem is, there isn’t a Veggie Fest. By the way, we suggest not going outside today because the Bacon Gods (there’s a group of them) are going to strike you down for just thinking about a vegetarian option. Now go sit in the corner and count to 100. You’re in timeout.
WILL THERE BE TURKEY BACON?
Turkey bacon doesn’t exist. Flattening another type of meat and cutting it into strips does not make it bacon. As stated in the question above, bacon is made from pork bellies, and nothing else.
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN WATER? WILL THERE BE WATER?
You are allowed to bring in one 16oz sealed (never been opened) bottle of water. Water will also be provided during the event.
IS RE-ENTRY ALLOWED?
Re-entry is not allowed. The good folks at the new location prefer it this way. Unfortunately, some people don’t know how to act in public parks.
CAN I BRING MY DOG(S)?
As much as all of us at Bacon Fest Headquarters love dogs, they are not allowed to join in on the fun.
