WHAT IS THE BACON AND BEER FESTIVAL?
The Bacon and Beer Festival is the premier event and celebration of all things brews and bacon. The mission of the Bacon and Beer Festival is to provide education, recognition and downright gluttony of America’s other past time, all while showcasing shining stars of swine and providing exposure to one of the fastest and on-trend entertainment events in the nation.
From community leaders to students, local residents to the greater Midwest region, thousands of Bacon and Beer enthusiasts will enjoy hours of sampling the best bacon-inspired dishes with carefully selected beer pairings.
The festival’s mission is to bring together the region’s top eateries, pork purveyors, and specialty craft brews in a one-day salute to the ultimate culinary match made in hog heaven. Patrons are invited to sample over 100+ craft beers and watch the area’s top 25 restaurants compete to take home the festival’s Squealer Award.
