Note: Each taste ticket is good for one sample of bacon-inspired goodness from any of our food vendors.

In addition to the satisfying sizzle of bacon, there will be fun for the whole family with music, balloon animals, a bouncy house, and much more!

We are celebrating much more than bacon this year! A portion of the proceeds from our event will benefit Virginia's Commonwealth Autism Service!

For the love of bacon, be there and be hungry!
