Festival of Bacon Will Bring 2000 Bacon Lovers to Downtown Orlando on October 5th, 2013

Hi everyone!

On October 5th, 2013 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., Festival Park in Downtown Orlando will be the setting for an 8-hour bacon extravaganza! I know from my social media accounts how popular bacon is with everything – we’ve even had bacon on cupcakes, something I’d never expected to enjoy and did.

Over 30 top restaurants from Central Florida will partipate, and they expect more than 2000 bacon lovers to enjoy over 5000 pounds of bacon!

Even better, a portion of the ticket sales will benefit the Future 6 Helping Hands Foundation.

Nearby parking is free, based on availability. You can read all about the Festival of Bacon in their FAQ and how to buy tickets. More information and more vendors are being posted regularly! If you love bacon, then Festival Park is the place to be on October 5th.

Vendors include:

Kings Bowl Orlando

Porkie’s Original BBQ

Daytona Taproom

The Citrus

The Station

Bacon cocktails will be available, as will bacon beer brewed by the Sea Dog Brewing Company!

What to expect on the day of:

  • Over 30,000 Samples of Bacon
  • Best Bacon Competition
  • Live Music – Ben Prestage + Kaleigh Baker + Vagabond Swing + My Lucky Penny + DJ Brian H
  • Free Kids Zone – Bounce House + More
  • TV’s with College Football Games
  • Kids Face Painting
  • Skateboarding Demonstrations
  • Bacon Games and Activities

It sounds like a fun time, we are looking forward to stopping by!
