Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival


The 10th Annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival will return to the Iowa Events Center on Saturday, February 18, 2017!

Recently recognized by National Geographic's Travel Magazine as "Iowa's Best Food Festival", the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival plans again to take over ALL FOUR LEVELS of Hy-Vee Hall & Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center.

The one-day "bacon happening" consistently attracts bacon-loving participants from around the world. Brooks Reynolds, Chair of the Iowa Bacon Board & festival co-founder, explained, "We're honored to have reached this decade long milestone in our rich history of promoting international bacon fellowship. And, we can't wait to celebrate it with thousands of our bacon-loving friends!"

The 2017 theme and ticket stales information will be released right after Halloween, so extreme bacon-lovers can acquire new costume at clearing rack prices or have time to retool existing bacony getups. OHHH, BACON!
