After a sold-out debut year in 2018, the Grossinger Motors Arena is bringing back the Bacon & Beer Festival to Bloomington; day filled with all things bacon and all things beer. This year the event will take place on a Saturday afternoon and feature bacon dishes prepared by local restaurants fighting for the title of the “Squeeler Award “– show’s best bacon dish. The event will also offer samples of approximately 100 different local and regional craft beers. All samples are included in the price of admission.
Our mission is to provide education, recognition and downright gluttony of America’s other past time, all while showcasing shining stars of swine and providing exposure to one of the fastest entertainment events in the nation.
From community leaders to students, local residents to the greater Midwest region, thousands of beer & bacon enthusiasts will enjoy hours of sampling the best bacon-inspired dishes with carefully selected beer pairings.
