It’s back in less than a week! The festival that makes all other festivals jealous is coming back to Keystone again this weekend on June 22nd and 23rd. Not because it’s the world’s biggest, but rather because it is a celebration of that one food that just about everyone seems to love. We are of course speaking about the only food that falls into almost every category of food: breakfast, lunch, dinner, meat, side dish, main course, appetizer, condiment and to some perhaps even “vegetable,” yep, we’re talking about Bacon.
River Run Village at Keystone Resort plays host once again to the festival devoted to what some consider the world’s most versatile food. The food that once was just for breakfast can now be seen in a huge variety of dishes. It can be used as a topping on a cheeseburger and a topping on a pizza, a wrapping for a filet mignon or the wrapping of a Jalapeno pepper. It can be infused with Vodka and added to a bloody Mary, or even be added to a Latte to make coffee that much better. It can be prepared in a frying pan, or breaded and deep fried or doused in chocolate and served over ice cream. You will love the chance to try all of these amazing dishes, prepared by the best chefs around!
Keystone Resort provides the perfect backdrop for the 3rd annual installment of the Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour, where some of the best purveyors of Bacon in the U.S. will be on-hand offering samples of their best stuff. In addition, there will be plenty of vendors offering almost any bacon combination you can think of. If the stimulation of your olfactory and gustatory systems wasn’t enough, be sure to pop in to Warren Station for one of the Bacon University Seminars. Learn about the various types of bacon, methods of curing, and virtually anything you could ever hope to know about bacon.. and more!
For two days, Keystone’s River Run Village will be ALL ABOUT BACON! The tastings will be accompanied by cold beverages and free live music from Hamilton Loomis, The Steeldrivers, and Hell’s Belles.
