Join us for bacon, bacon, bacon and more bacon

The Dunkin’ Bacon Festival will feature dozens of vendors serving bacon inspired treats. These vendors will be required to have items that contain bacon on their menus, such as bacon burgers, bacon mac n’ cheese, bacon wrapped scallops and bacon sundaes.

Dunkin’ will be offering samples of Maple Sugar Seasoned Snackin’ Bacon to festival attendees on Saturday, August 14. Dunkin’ is putting a flavorful spin on its beloved Snackin’ Bacon by offering snack-sized slices of bacon with maple sugar seasoning. Dunkin’ will also celebrate during the festival by handing out Dunkin’ cards and swag throughout the event.

“The Dunkin’ Bacon Festival is one of Syracuse’s most anticipated events of the year and we are thrilled to celebrate by sharing our signature bacon treats with the community,” said Dunkin’ Field Marketing Manager Eric Stensland. “We will be celebrating during the bacon festival by offering guests our delicious Maple Sugar Seasoned Snackin’ Bacon. We are excited to help keep Central New York running and celebrate all things bacon with the community.”

Other Dunkin’ Bacon Festival attractions will include the non-stop music played by local musicians, an activity zone, wine slushies, ice cold beer, and even a photo booth.

“We are very excited to bring back the Dunkin’ Bacon Festival! This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever with two days of live entertainment, tasty treats and family fun! The event will also be the first official festival back in Clinton Square,” said Galaxy Chief Operations Officer Carrie Wojtaszek. “We look forward to tasting the delicious creations from our local food vendors and hearing all of the great live music.”
