The Second Annual Arizona Bacon Fest returns to Tucson on Saturday, June 7, 2014 with new title sponsor Hormel and Black Label® Bacon. The event will be held at the Kino Sports Complex from 5:00pm to 10:00pm under the lights of the ballpark. General admission starts at 6:00pm.
Festival goers will be treated with bacon-centric samplings from 30+ local restaurants and 20 breweries from Tucson, across Arizona, and even Canada’s Parallel 49 Brewing Company. Chefs will compete with their bacon-filled creations submitted to a panel of celebrity judges from television and radio for the title of “ABF Best in Show.”
Attendees will also receive a 4-oz. tasting glass to taste the latest craft beer offerings and to learn about proper pairing of styles of beer with different types of food. Live music from Love Boat delivering “Yacht Rock” and Evolution bringing “Arena Anthem Rock” will provide the entertainment with DJs Super Mario and Michael “DJ Bignut” Lopez spinning party music in between sets.
This 21 and over event will also provide interactive games such as horseshoe toss, steer roping, and much more.
Tickets start at $40 in advance from local merchants Brushfire BBQ, Plaza Liquors, and Lindy’s on 4th Avenue. Tickets can also be purchased online for $45, with VIP packages at $100. The VIP package will allow an hour early entrance, a separate gated entrance, t-shirt, and a tented “trough” with a waitress to deliver the beer and bacon.
Free parking will be available onsite. Fairfield Inn and Suites will also offer free shuttle service to and from the festival.
A portion of the proceeds will go to La Frontera of Arizona’s Rally Point. Rally Point is a service of military veterans helping veterans.
