Description

Bacon & Bourbon Fusion

Bacon is one of the most loved food in the universe and the route to all things swine and divine. Add the quintessential American liquor, bourbon; mind blown.

These indulgences come together at the annual Breckenridge HogFest - Bacon & Bourbon.

Brown Spirits, Scotch & Meat!

Meat connoisseurs will be able to taste their way through a spectrum of pork samples, premium whiskeys, single malt scotches and barrel-aged spirits while enjoying live music and mixology at the base of Peak 9, Breckenridge! We want to speak to palates of all distinctions, and our golden rule will be to feature the best of the best to the brownest of the brown.

Bacon, Bacon & Bacon

Most food festivals can be fun and memorable. But what sets ours above others is that we care about animal welfare and the quality of bacon that YOU are consuming. Believe it or not, this standard makes us bold in our industry. So, we have chosen a partner, Tender Belly, that is as compassionate and as serious as we are, about humane and sustainable practices. Taste the difference. See why Tender Belly is "Certified Awesome."

Please note - Festival food from featured vendors, other than bacon tastings and pork dish samples located in 'bacon alley', is not included in the ticket, but is available a la carte.
