America Loves Bacon Festival

Is there a more perfect food than bacon? It’s good flimsy; it’s good crispy. It enhances savory dishes and brings an unexpected salty twang to desserts. It’s the one thing conservatives and liberals agree on: bacon is awesome. Celebrate this greatest of meats at the America Loves Bacon Festival, which features dozens of vendors offering samples of bacon, bacon cooking demonstrations, bacon eating contests, bacon clothing, bacon sauces, and more.

The America Loves Bacon Festival sizzles from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday, February 28, at Rawhide Western Town, 5700 West North Loop Road in Chandler. General admission tickets are $25. Call 480-502-5600 or visit for more.
