Eat bacon, shop for bacon and even head to a Kevin Bacon movie night.
If you're serious about bacon, then there's only one place to be over the weekend of Friday, August 23–Sunday, August 25. That's the town of Kingaroy, about two-and-a-half hours north-west of Brisbane. As it does every year, it's dedicating three whole days to one glorious type of foodstuff — whether you're keen on eating it, buying a heap of it or entering the bacon olympics.
Basically, if there's bacon involved, it's on offer during Kingaroy BaconFest. Browse the bacon market, watch bacon cooking demonstrations, catch the smoke-off barbecue competition or try your hand at the tastiest eating contest there is. Yes, it's about bacon, obviously.
Live music is also on the bill, as is a different kind of bacon: Kevin Bacon. It wouldn't be a proper bacon-focused celebration without recognising the actor, so attendees can also head along to a Kevin Bacon movie night. Although it's happening on the Saturday evening, you'd best kick off your Sunday shoes, because none other than Footloose will be hitting the big screen.
