This "porktacular", two-day festival celebrates all things bacon and features cook-off competitions, pig-themed activities for the entire family, live music, merchandise from local artists and much, much more!

 

Bacon lovers will be in hog heaven while sampling various "baconlicious" bacon-inspired dishes ranging from Pig Wings to bacon-wrapped delights from the region's best local restaurants, food vendors and trucks.

 

Sample every "baconlicious" bacon-inspired dish; then cast your vote for the People's Choice Winner.

 

Young and old will squeal with delight over the variety of pig-themed contests including Pig Races, Pet Costume Parade, Kid's Eating, Pig Wing Eating, Pig Calling/Impersonation Contests and more!  Piggle(s) of all ages will go hog wild for the quirky official Pig Pardon, "When Pigs Fly" as plush pigs are flung from the rooftops and "When Pigs Float" as plastic pigs float down the Kinnickinnic River.

 

Bring the piggy bank and browse the marketplace with a "twist" as some 60 merchandise vendors share their unique products such as homemade jams, specialty dips and sauces, bacon-scented candles and lotions, bacon novelties, gifts and apparel for all ages!  Bacon lovers will go oinkers over the selection of local microbrews and wines while enjoying hours of musical entertainment.
