By
Real Estate Agent with ERA Real Solutions

The second Ohio Bacon Fest will be held Friday September 9, 2016 at the Columbus Commons, 160 South High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215.

Bacon inspired dishes will be served by 20 vendors including 1803 Bacon, Porky's Pub, Great Lakes Brewing, Barrel and Boar and The Top Steak House among others.

The event costs $5.00 for general admission (children under 6 admitted free) and starts at 5 p.m. and ending at 10:30 p.m. The cost for dishes start at $3.00.  There will be a bacon eating contest at approximately 7:30, competitors will have 5 minutes to consume as much bacon as they can.  With a contest like that, how can there be any losers?

The event will also feature a hog roast, a mechanical riding pig, RP Hicks DJ will provide music from 5:00 to 5:45 and live music performances with Winnie Cooper Project Set, Trailer Park Ninjas and the Fabulous Johnson Brothers.

Additional details can be found on the official website

And a Columbus Dispatch article featuring the event.

You would be up for a challenge for the title I'm sure Barbara Todaro!

I don't want to think of a world without bacon in it.

One of my favorite foods as well, at last years inaugural event they had over 40 different varieties to sample.

I will try to let you know more in advance for next years event so you can make it a mini vacation destination , I think you will like our fine city here.

Hi Greg... I'm sure I'll be accused of being un-American or something, but I'm not a huge bacon fan. But that wouldn't stop me from going to the festival and checking it all out.

If you are accused of being un-American Nina Hollander, it will not be by me. As Americans (as of this writing, with the exception of kids in the public school system) we still have the right to choose what we eat.  As for me, I choose bacon over tofu, and not going to judge your personal taste and preferences.

Ohio is a big pork state, and bacon can be added to most anything on the menu in many restaurants. One of the big hits at the State Fair this year was chocolate covered bacon.

Greg Large ~ hi Greg... well, I don't do tofu, either! My resistance to bacon is not health-related... strictly a taste thing.
