Celebrate all things bacon at the 7th annual Bacon Bash on September 14-15! This porktacular, two-day festival celebrates all things bacon and features pig-themed activities for the entire family, live music, merchandise from local artists, and much more!
Bacon lovers will be in hog heaven while sampling over 30 different bacon-inspired dishes from the region's best local restaurants, food vendors and trucks.
Young and old will squeal with delight over the variety of pig-themed contests including a Pet Costume Parade, Kid's Eating, Pig Wing Eating, Pig Calling/Impersonation Contests and more! Piglets of all ages will go hog wild for the quirky official Pig Pardon, "When Pigs Fly" as plush pigs are flung from the rooftops, and "When Pigs Float" as plastic pigs float down the Kinnickinnic River.
Bring your piggy bank and browse the marketplace with a bacon-licious twist as over 40 different merchandise vendors share their unique products such as homemade jams, specialty dips and sauces, bacon novelties, gifts, and apparel for all ages! Bacon lovers will go oinkers over the selection of local microbrews and wines while enjoying hours of musical entertainment.
