WATCH FOR US! We're coming back in August 2019 for the 3rd Annual Bacon Festival! Many of the 2018 vendors will be returning to sell their famous bacon creations and you'll find plenty of new baconatarians jumping on the hamwagon this year as well. Spend your day pigging-out on familiar bacon favorites and belly-up with a new tasty creation, too! Admission is FREE! We'll let you know what day the bacon will be sizzling early in 2019.
