Aside from the food, there'll be pork-related activities. Artisan bacon-makers and bacontrepreneurs will be selling everything from gourmet smoked bacon to bacon lip balm to bacon jewelry at the Bacon Expo. You also can head to the Bacon Café, Bar & Cocktail Lounge to fill up bacony snacks from local restaurants, bacon-studded sweets from area bakeries and bacon cocktails from nearby bars. Be still our clogged hearts.
To round out the festival, artists, poets, musicians and actors will perform as part of the Bacon Cultural Explosion. The Golden Rashers, the Oscars of the bacon world, also will be awarded to the winners of the Pro & Amateur Bacon Cook-Offs.
Unfortunately, tickets for the dinner went like hot strips of bacon and are sold out. It will especially be a blow to the people passing by the festival and inhaling that hunger-inducing bacon aroma. You can probably get into the Bacon Expo, though. Mmm, bacon.
