If you love bacon as much as the next person, then you better not miss the very first ever Long Island BaconFest! The festival will be held March 15th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the All Star Arena in Coram, and it’s sure to be a fun day for the whole family.
The Bacon Fest will host dozens of vendors, local chefs, and even some of your favorite restaurants from all over the island. All participants are coming together in order to give you the most delicious bacon treats this side of the LIE. You won’t believe what these people have decided to do with bacon, and you get to experience all of it under one roof!
Whether you prefer traditional bacon dishes like bacon burgers, BLT’s, or bacon-egg-and-cheese sandwiches, or want to try something different, like bacon cannolis, bacon ice cream, or bacon pretzels, the options are going to be endless! For people who want to join in the fun but aren’t huge fans of bacon, there will be other food and dessert options to try as well.
So, bring your appetite and an open-mind, as this fest is going to have crazy bacon foods you’ve never even imagined. If you taste a few bacon delights that you really enjoy, vendors will be selling treats for you to take home. And, once you get really full from all the taste-testing, there will also be vendors selling everything from jewelry, to hot sauce, to awesome Bacon Fest merchandise.
With only a few weeks left, make sure you get your tickets at libaconfest.com. $10 online at $14, and doors open at 9:30, so get there early! BACON, BACON, BACON!!!
