Bacon and beer lovers rejoice! After drawing sold-out crowds across the country, the Bacon and Beer Classic is coming to Minneapolis' Nicollet Island Pavilion on Saturday, April 15th, for the ultimate food and drink experience.
A festival unlike any other, the Classic will feature mouth-watering bacon dishes, unlimited bacon strips, and over 50 craft beers from regional breweries. Guests can also try their hand at giant Jenga, strike a pose in a photo booth, battle it out on the bungee run, brand themselves with bacon and beer-inspired tattoos, compete in a bacon eating contest, and more. The first place winner of the bacon eating contest will take home a year of Hormel® Black Label® bacon and the second place winner will take home a Duff Goldman gift basket from Tylina Foods.
Guests can attend the afternoon session from 12:30pm-3pm, evening session from 4:30pm-7pm, or night session from 8:30pm-11pm. VIP ticket holders are offered half-hour early admission and access to an exclusive cocktail bar.
As always, the Bacon and Beer Classic is all-inclusive. General Admission tickets are currently selling at $45 and VIP tickets are selling at $55. All tickets include a commemorative tasting glass and access to the Bacon and Beer Classic mobile app for vendor information, special partner discounts, a pavilion map, and more.
Hosted in cities across the country, the Bacon and Beer Classic will travel to over seven destinations this year including Santa Clara’s Levi’s® Stadium, Denver's Mile High Stadium and NYC’s Citi Field. Cannonball Productions works hard to make this national festival feel unique to each city. Along with a variety of charitable organizations, Cannonball Productions is partnering with a local food recovery program to save and donate leftover food.
