Bacon Festival

Spend the weekend eating bacon in everything — and in your drinks, too.

A word of warning for anyone approaching the Bowen Hills area on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15. If you don't like bacon, you might want to steer clear. With a heap of the city's food trucks descending upon the suburb, bringing plenty of pork with them and cooking up a storm, we're predicting that you'll be able to smell the scent of frying bacon well beyond the Brisbane Showgrounds.

And hear it, too. Prepare for the sounds of sizzling to echo across King Street as Welcome to Bowen Hills throws a two-day Bacon Festival. Sure, the venue seems to dedicate every weekend to a new kind of food — but when it's something this tasty, no one is complaining.

Across the fest, the appropriately named The Frying Piggy and The Roaming Pig will be doing what they do best, plus, Mr Burger, Bearded Brothers, Micasa Burger Truck, Salt Meats Cheese and Bimm's BBQ Chargrill too. Don't just expect to get your bacon fix in edible form either, with bacon-themed booze flowing through the bar as well.
