Tickets to the “3rd Annual Blue Ribbon Festival: 2010 A Bacon Odyssey – A Bacon Odyssey, One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Bacon” are officially sold out. 600 tickets were sold in 25 minutes through the Iowa Events Center ticket office today at noon. “We are overwhelmed with the positive response to the ticket sales this year and excited to have a bacon-drenched throw down with 600 of our newest friends,” says the face of bacon, Brooks Reynolds.
Capacity was more than doubled for this year’s event due to the positive response received at last year’s event. The Iowa Bacon Board is overjoyed at the response and is mindful of those bacon lovers who weren’t able to purchase a ticket in time before the event sold out. The Board will be congregating in the coming days to confer on possible adjustments to the event and expansion for future events.
