I like bacon, you like bacon – just about everyone likes bacon! Come out to the 4th annual Savannah Bacon Fest on River Street, September 1st through the 4th, 2017, for live music, arts and crafts, and delicious, mouthwatering, heavenly BACON!
Bacon has always tasted this good so I’m confused as to why it took us this long to so widely celebrate it. Everywhere you look these days, there’s something new with bacon. Bacon wrapped this, bacon shaped that, bacon scented air fresheners, and bacon flavored desserts. It can all seem a bit over the top – but we ARE talking about bacon, after all!
Savannah takes the trend of bacon-appreciation to its logical conclusion with the annual, 4-day Savannah Bacon Fest on River Street. Select local restaurants will be serving a variety of tempting bacon creations. You’ll see bacon, pork belly, sow belly, pork slab, pancetta and more. You’ll also see things you never considered doing with bacon – and you may be surprised at how good it all is!
Savannah Bacon Fest also includes live music for your entertainment, arts and crafts vendors, and a fireworks show Friday night. The musical lineup has yet to be announced but you can always count on good, toe-tapping tunes on River Street. The arts and crafts show is a juried show, so you’ll be seeing some of the best handmade creations the Savannah area has to offer. A great opportunity to get some holiday shopping out of the way.
As an unexpected treat, the Savannah Craft Brew Fest is scheduled to coincide with the River Street Bacon Festival: September 2nd, 2pm to 6pm. While the beer fest takes place across the river at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center, it’s still a wonderful coincidence.
Start out at the Savannah Bacon Fest Saturday morning, then head over to the Savannah Craft Brew Fest in the afternoon. That or the reverse: beer fest first, then bacon fest. The again, you could do the beer festival one day and the bacon festival on another. No matter your choice, it’s a weekend filled with beer and bacon. Sounds like a heaven to me!
Savannah Bacon Fest is a free, annual event. Don’t miss it!
