Taking place April 26 in the Inner Harbor at Rash Field along Key Highway, festival goers will be smothered with bacon.
Food vendors from all over the state will be bringing their bacon for hungry people to sample, and don’t forget dessert. Yes, even if you have a sweet tooth, there will be plenty of bacon themed confectionary delights.
This event will feature both bacon sampling and full sized bacon cuisine, bacon confectionary delights, bacon eating contests, bacon cooking demonstrations, live music from some of the area’s top bands (who also love bacon), a bacon themed children’s zone, bacon cooking competitions, full service bars with beer, liquor, wine and bacon themed cocktails, a vendor village featuring various non-food bacon themed vendors and much more.
Don’t forget to wash it all down with some bacon flavored soda.
Children 8 and under are free for they just don’t eat as much bacon as grownups, and you can get in to the festival now for a special early bird price of $20.
The festival is all day from noon to 10pm.
Let’s get baconed!
