Bacon Eve is a day dedicated to preparation and rest for the bacon enthusiast. Listed below you’ll find some helpful hints to ensure you have the best possible bacon experience at this year’s festival:
HOW TO PREPARE?
Drink plenty of water tonight to avoid the swelling factor. When you arrive tomorrow morning please leave all tight fitting jewelry at home, bring your favorite bacon haiku to share with your friends, put on a bacony t-shirt and get excited that you’re in Iowa during the culmination of Bacon Week!
We’ve moved! This year’s Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival will be held at the Scottish Rite Consistory located at 519 Park Street, Des Moines. Street parking will be limited due to the National Pheasant Fest at Wells Fargo Arena. We recommend you park in the ramp located on the corner of 7th and Center streets.
The doors open at 10am and the event goes until 4pm. Your tickets will be waiting for you at will call. The after party celebration will be at the High Life and El Bait Shop. Complimentary transportation back and forth between the Scottish Rite and El Bait Shop will be provided throughout the day by Voss Distributing.
Also, there will be limited usage of credit cards for beverage tickets and merchandise.
