Join us for the largest Bacon Festival in the South!

Cleveland, Tennessee will be hosting BaCON April 13, 2019 – A festival devoted to bacon. Last year, BaCON catered to over 20,000 guest in just one day! In 2019, we will once again feature over 200 vendors, live music, contest, games and a kids zone. Admission is $5.00 for adults and free for children under 12. We’ve moved to a bigger location-the TRI-STATE EXPO, just off I-75 Exit 20

OK. Let's be honest. The music, activities, and craft vendors are great, but this is called BaCon for a reason. Every food vendor must have three bacon items on the menu (in addition to other great food, like burgers and ice cream ). These dishes will be judged by our local celebrities, but also offered to the general public. 2019 will have even more bacon with shorter lines, more vendors and a NEW Bacon Row, dedicated to good ol'  fashioned bacon-without the fru-fru.

Our schedule begins at 8:00 a.m. with a 5K race to kick-off the celebration and it doesn't end until 6pm. Stay for a couple of hours, or stay all day! There are events for just about everyone. Whether you prefer to spectate or participate, we have you covered. From musical acts to contests, its gonna be a day to remember.

Stay-tuned for updates on our musical performances and registrations for our fun new contests!

We have a day full of events scheduled for our BaCon community. We have a bacon contest-judged by local celebrities, a Ron Swanson look-a-like contest, a pig callin' contest,  an SEC smack-talk competition, corn-hole, a pig race (get your bets in early for this one) and the Great Greased-Pig Chase. All of this fun on top of incredible music, shopping, southern crafts and BACON!

Stay tuned for more details about 2019 as they come in.
