Portland’s third annual Baconfest takes place Saturday, August 13, 2011. The street party runs from noon until 8pm at 18th and East Burnside – adjacent to the East Burn (1800 E Burnside).
Over 2000 bacon lovers attended last year’s fest, thoroughly lubricating their cardiovascular system and contributing over 900 pounds of food for the Oregon Food Bank.
The Baconfest features vendors such as Hopworks Urban Brewery, Tim’s Chips, Baconshirts.com, Bakon Vodka, and more. In addition the Timbers Army Truck will be there, and the fine folks of Cascadia.FM.
Entertainment includes live bands and the services of DJ Mel.
Festival goers can compete in The Bacon Toss, The Wacky Bacon Eating Contest, Giant Bacon Twister, The Greasy Bacon Foot Challenge, The Bacon Dance Off, or The Bacon Art Wall for fabulous prizes.
