Meaning, like its counterparts, attendees can get anything from bacon donuts, to bacon mac and cheese, to bacon burgers, to bacon beer from food trucks and local vendors. Besides, the Bacon Fest "is a celebration of all things bacon, beer and fun."

The date is set for Saturday, July 30th from 4-8 p.m. with VIP entry available at 3 p.m. at Jackson Field.
