On Sunday June 14, 2015, Richmond will host an annual event of culinary creativity known as the Bacon Festival! The Bacon Festival, which is now it its third year, is the perfect opportunity to sample food from a variety of Richmond’s unique restaurants and even food trucks. Last year, there were vendor appearances by Red Eye Cookie Co., Mama J’s, King of Pops and several others. Bacon is put to use in every form from cookies to chocolate popsicles and from mac-n-cheese to wrapped jalapenos. Most of the plates ran about four dollars but it was definitely worth it!
Not a fan of Bacon? Not a problem. The Bacon Festival offers live music, drinks, and an exciting atmosphere to mingle. Purchases are not limited to food and beverages; other products will be sold from locally established businesses. Last year, the Hemp Dog Cafe food truck sold a number of hemp-based products in addition to its original “Hemp Dog”.
The Bacon Festival is free to the public and will be held at the 17th Street Farmer’s Market from 11am to 5pm. For more updates regarding this event, follow @BaconFestRVA on Twitter.
