Following a sold-out debut at Grossinger Motors Arena earlier this year, the Bacon & Beer Festival will be returning for its second year on March 2, 2019.


The Bacon & Beer Festival is the premier event and celebration of all things brews and bacon! The mission of the Bacon & Beer Festival is to provide education, recognition, and downright gluttony of America’s other past time, all while showcasing the shining starts of swine and providing exposure to one of the fastest on-trend entertainment events in the country.


Due to a sold-out first year and even more demand in 2019, the festival will be growing beyond just the arena floor to also include the arena concourse and food and beverage stands. The festival will feature bacon dishes prepared by local restaurants fighting for the “Squealer Award,” the show’s best bacon dish. Additionally, nearly 100 different local and regional craft brews will be available to sample.


From community leaders to students, local residents to the greater Midwest region, thousands of bacon and beer enthusiasts will enjoy hours of sampling the best bacon-inspired dishes with carefully selected craft beer samples.
