Everything is better with bacon, including Richmond! Last year another record-breaking crowd came to the 17th Street Farmers' Market to taste, sample, sell, smell and enjoy all things bacon. This year, the Richmond Bacon Festival returns with more event space, more restaurants, more food trucks, more beverage stations, and more live music.
More than 40 Richmond restaurants and food trucks will bring their creative minds to this event, each one offering their own favorite bacon-centric dishes. Sample everything from bacon cheeseburger sliders, bacon-infused mac-n-cheese, bacon empanadas, bacon & cheese fritters and bacon corn muffins to candied bacon, bacon croissants, bacon ice pops, chocolate-covered bacon and maple-bacon lattes!
The Richmond Bacon Festival is presented by Devils Backbone Brewing Company, Brown Distributing and the 17th Street Farmers' Market. Free to attend, food and beverages available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the Enrichmond Foundation and its 116 partner and friends groups, serving the people, parks and public spaces of the City of Richmond for 25 years. Join us for a day full of food, music, beverages and fun!
