The 3rd Annual Bacon Festival returns 06/14/2015 11am - 5pm. Everything is better with bacon, including Richmond! Last year a record-breaking crowd came out to the 17th Street Farmers’ Market to taste, sample, sell, smell and flat out enjoy all things bacon. Local Richmond restaurants and food trucks bring their creative minds to this event, offering everything from bacon-infused sliders, ribs, clam cakes and mac- n-cheese to chocolate bacon ice pops. The festival layout has been expanded for 2015, with more event space, more food vendors, more beverage stations, just more, more and more of a great thing. The festival is fully prepared for a mass influx of bacon-lovers. Richmond Bacon Festival will also feature live music and shopping. The event is free to attend. Food and beverage are available for purchase, BRING CASH!!
