Move over, Iowa – there’s another bacon festival coming soon to the Midwest.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival will come to Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis., on Nov. 1.
From crowning a Bacon Queen to unlimited bacon samples, the event is looking to give the Iowa Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival a run for its money.
“No doubt about it, on November 1st the ‘OHHHH BACON!’ chant will resonate throughout the great state of Wisconsin,” Brooks Reynolds, co-founder of the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival, said in a news release.
So just how popular could a bacon festival be? Last December, 12,500 tickets to Iowa’s festival sold out online in just 43 minutes.
