Head to the hills at Keystone Resort for the Bacon & Bourbon festival, happening this Saturday and Sunday, June 23 & 24, 2018. If you've never been to this festival, you are in for a real treat. Thousands of pounds of bacon will be on hand for tasting, prepared in a multitude of ways. Some of the country's best bacon purveyors will be sizzling up classic strip-style bacon for tasting. You'll also see Keystone & Summit County restaurant vendors getting creative, creating all sorts of bacon flavored dishes to try. Bacon in pasta. Bacon on pizza. Bacon on top of bacon. Gourmet bacon dishes. Bacon street food. Bacon desserts. Bacon beverages and more! You'll find some of the most unique and interesting dishes, all incorporating bacon in unexpected ways at this festival, truly a bacon lovers dream! There are 3 types of tickets available for the festival - a kids 'Piglet' ticket package, the 'Swamplin' Swine' mid-level ticket package and the 'Hungry Hog' ticket package- for those serious bacon lovers or anyone (21+) who wants in on the bourbon tasting. All ticket packages are good for a single day and include UNLIMITED bacon strip samples, varying numbers of the bacon 'cuisine' types of dishes, as well as a beverage or two and a commemorative event trucker hat.
