How many ways can you eat a pig? You can find out at the 3rd annual Bacon Fest held November 8th & 9th in Downtown Easton, Centre Square. It’s the largest festival associated with Easton’s farmers market. In its 3rd year, the festival plans to have the biggest one yet, with an estimated attendance of over 50,000.
The festival originated from the highly successful VegFest held each year in Bethlehem. The idea was that if a Vegan festival can do so well, why can’t a “meat festival” or Bacon Festival do just as well for the non-vegan and meat lovers in this world. The idea became a huge success as PA Bacon fest is now also listed as one of the top 300 festivals in the world on fest300.com.Continue Reading
