Event – Star City BaconFest

Ya, there are bigger bacon fests out there. But this one hasn’t happened yet.

The Star City BaconFest in Lincoln Nebraska is Sunday, April 19th from 4:30- 7 pm. You’ll get to sample Lincoln’s finest bacon-inspired delights with live music.

Last year the first place winner was Brewsky’s, for its Sweet & Spicy Sliders – seasoned slow smoked pork injected with apple cider topped with Granny Smith apple coleslaw, diced candied jalapeno bacon and a raspberry Bullet Bourbon jam.

Second place was Hurts Donut, for its Mini Maple Bacon Long John and third place, was Smoking Gun Jerky, for its Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Bacon, Maple & Cracked Black Pepper Hawaiian Jerky.

Sponsored by the Nebraska Pork Producers Association (NPPA) and the Nebraska Restaurant Association (NRA). All proceeds benefit culinary students in the state and provides over $5,000 in scholarships through the NRA’s Hospitality Education Foundation.

It’s bacon for a good cause, what other excuse do you need.
