WELCOME to BACONFEST ST. LOUIS: The Center of All Things Bacon!
On March 23rd 2013 come on down to Keiner Plaza in Downtown St. Louis where we will be celebrating the most important and best food item in the entire universe: BACON
Without bacon life would be sad, food would be boring and the birds would not chirp. So to bacon, we have created an entire day of revelry all in the name of bacon. With 10,000 anticipated guests in attendance, Baconfest will be the ultimate appreciation to everything bacon, and Downtown St. Louis' Kiener Plaza is the world's most perfect venue for it. The free all-day festival will features food vendors creating bacon-inspired dishes, bacon infused drinks, live music, bacon merchandise, and bacon art and bacon activities for the entire family.
The centerpiece of Baconfest will be the 'World’s Largest Bacon Explosion' with a WORLD RECORD weight of 500 POUNDS cooked in a custom-built smoker...the ultimate bacon glory! Once cooked, Baconfest guests will have an opportunity to purchase a piece of history!
The USO of Missouri is the charity of choice for Baconfest St. Louis 2013 so be sure to buy some of the Bacon Explosion and help support our troops!!
