Event – Star City BaconFest

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.

Winner announced April 2nd.
