Do you love bacon? Lots of people do. So many people love bacon that there’s a traveling bacon festival, and it’s coming to Pittsburgh on May 16th.
The America Loves Bacon Festival Tour is making its stop from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Station Square, with a VIP sampling starting at 11:30 a.m.
So what can you expect at a bacon festival? Well, bacon, of course. Lots of it. Both from the ALB touring menu and from local vendors. There will also be live music, comedians, cooking demonstrations, and vendors selling all things bacon, including apparel. Plus, the Children’s Zone will have bacon-themed fun for the little ones.
The event website for the Pittsburgh stop isn’t fully updated yet, but it looks like there will be a full service bar inside the festival for the 21 and over crowd. No specific information about vendors or live acts is available yet.
Tickets are on sale now for $15 general admission, and children 12 and under receive free admission. If you’re a true bacon lover, you could splurge on a $60 VIP ticket and get swag along with access to the VIP sampling before the festival opens for general admission.
The nice thing about the festival’s location is that it’s right on the T and both Red and Blue Line trolleys stop at Station Square. So if the T is convenient for you, you can skip driving and trying to find parking in Station Square.
