Bacon, bacon, bacon

Ozarks Bacon Fest – A Tribute to Bacon, Bourbon & Beer – will have its inaugural tasting event October 12, at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds E*Plex in Springfield, Mo.

Tickets give guests access to a bacon-infused wonderland where the Ozarks’ best chefs prepare amazing creative bacon snacks. National brands, artisan bacon makers and bacon purveyors will display, sample and sell a multitude of bacon and bacon-inspired products. The best mixologists and brewers will hand out bacon-inspired cocktails, beer and wine. In honoring bacon in all its glory, Ozarks Bacon Fest will have a Bacon Eating Contest, a Best Bacon Recipe contest and a Bacon Art contest.

A $30 admission ticket allows patrons samples of bacon and bacon-infused and inspired foods, local and regional beers, wines and spirits.

For the real bacon lover there is a $45 VIP Pass. This allows entry into the event one hour before the doors open to the public, one Ozarks Bacon Fest t-shirt plus a VIP Ozarks Bacon Fest gift bag with assorted bacon-inspired goodies.

Tickets will be limited and the event is expected to be a sell-out.

Hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for VIP ticket holders and noon-3 p.m. for regular ticket holders.
