Ozarks Bacon Fest – a tribute to Bacon, Bourbon & Beer – holds its inaugural tasting event on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds E-Plex. Tickets give guests access to a bacon-infused wonderland where the Ozark’s best chefs prepare amazing creative bacon snacks. National brands, artisan bacon-makers, and bacon purveyors display, sample, and sell a multitude of bacon and bacon inspired products. The best mixologists and brewers hand out bacon-inspired cocktails, beer and wine. And in honoring bacon in all its glory, Ozarks Bacon Fest will be holding a Bacon Eating Contest, a Best Bacon Recipe contest and a Bacon Art contest.
A $30 admission ticket allows you samples of Bacon and bacon infused and inspired foods, local and regional beers, wines and spirits. Shop local and regional companies that offer items to enhance your inner “foodie” – both in and out of the kitchen!
For the REAL Bacon LOVER there is a $45 VIP Pass. This allows entry into the event one hour before the doors open to the public, one Ozarks Bacon Fest t-shirt plus a VIP Ozarks Bacon Fest gift bag with assorted bacon inspired goodies.
