The Reid Park Band Shell will be the home of Arizona’s first Bacon Fest. Saturday, May 18 is the day vegetarians should hide and pray to their veggie gods.

From the Bacon Fest Facebook page:

For one admission price you will sample creations from restaurants and chefs that all incorporate our beloved bacon along with sampling craft beers to make the day that much better.

Chefs, Cooks, and Individuals compete in the best bacon creation for trophy and cash prize. Judges will crown a winner and title him/her 2013 Bacon Champ.


Now I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Ugh, I love bacon but isn’t this “all bacon, all the time” slightly played out?” I would usually agree, but with the list of establishments including the likes of Gema Hotdogs, Calle Tepa Mexican Street Grill, Brushfire BBQ, On A Roll Sushi, Borderlands Brewing Co., Old Bisbee Brewing Co., Sentinel Peak Brewing Co., and Nimbus Brewing Co. I think it’s worth making an exception.

Live music and DJ’s will be providing background accompaniment to your bacon and beer festivities. Also there will be raffles and contests, with prizes, for all ages to participate in. Including a special “Kids Zone” for proper bacon indoctrination of the younglings.

Tickets are running at $25 for adults which includes all bacon samples and beer samples, $10 for kids ages 13-17 and includes all bacon samples and beverage, and to get them started loving swine early, kids 12 and under are free with paid adult ticket. For more details or to get your tickets go to www.arizonabaconfest.net.
