Virginia Bacon Festival
As a collaboration between Smithfield Foods and Beyond Boobs, Norfolk, Va., will be the home of Virginia Bacon Festival on Oct 5. The one-day festival was arranged in an effort to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, and will bring out plenty of bacon-themed dishes and drinks.
Visitors to the festival can enjoy an array of foods prepared by local restaurants such as The Public House, Belmont House of Smoke, and Twisted Sisters Cupcakes. Some of the creative bacon dishes served will include deep-fried bacon-wrapped chicken wings, bacon pizza, chocolate-covered bacon, and smoked bacon-wrapped sausage jalapeños. Guests can also enjoy bacon-infused cocktails, and buy bacon-themed products such as bacon jam. Live music performances will also be held by The Fighting Jamesons, the Pawn Shop Lifters, and The Sideshow Saints.
Tickets are $20 if bought in advance and $25 at the event. Kids less than 6 years old can access the event admission-free, and those aged 7 to 12 will get in at half the regular price.
