Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour

June 22, 2013 - June 23, 2013

Location: Keystone

Add to iCalendar/Outlook

Bacon – Pronunciation [bey-kuhn] – the back and sides of the hog, salted, and dried or smoked, usually sliced thin and fried for food.  Back for its 3rd year, this festival is sure to turn some heads.  Whether you’re a bacon enthusiast or the loved one of a bacon connoisseur, this event is for you.  With thousands of pounds of bacon and bacon inspired cuisine at your finger tips you won’t want to miss this weekend long celebration of bacon. Along with bacon cuisine you’ll enjoy free live music from Hamilton Loomis, the Steeldrivers, and Hell’s Belles.  The Bacon Bloody Mary’s are always a hit and you need to try the cucumber vodka ice tea with your bacon cuisine! To quote the BRBT organizers, “Much like the Crusaders revolutionized the lives of Europeans by introducing a large variety of spices from the East, the Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour travels to places like Colorado to transform the lives of bacon lovers by introducing a variety of bacons and bacon-inspired dishes from around the world.  Of course, we like to do all this while tossing back a few cold beers.” Be there!
