Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour at Keystone- A Festival Dedicated to Bacon!

That's right, a Keystone summer festival dedicated entirely to the salty candy of meats- BACON!  On June 22 & 23,  the smell of delicious sizzling bacon will take over Keystone's River Run Village!

Vendors from across the country will be serving up pounds and pounds of bacon!  Whether it be traditional style bacon, chocolate dipped bacon, bacon sundaes, or bacon Bloody Marys, you know it will be good! Be prepared for some great surprises with some of the more unconventional dishes!  Don't miss the signature event, where vendors pair up with Keystone chefs to create unique bacon dishes and are judged in both 'savory' and 'sweet' categories. Festival visitors can also enjoy live music and beer all weekend while taking in the sights and sounds of the festival.  There will be bacon-themed lectures and cooking demonstrations held at Warren Station over the course of the weekend, to help people learn about all the different ways of cooking with bacon and new techniques to help you whip up your own unique bacon dishes at home.  Kids can have fun playing bacon-themed games and doing free crafts and activities, not to mention meeting the giant pig mascot.

This fun event is the first of three major summer festivals in Keystone, followed by the Wine & Jazz Festival on July 13 and 14th and the popular Bluegrass and Beer Festival taking place the first weekend in August. 

SummitCove Lodging is offering weekend festival packages that include your festival tickets and lodging in River Run Village.  See Bacon Festival Packages Here.
