Punters can anticipate a ‘pig day out’ at the Kingaroy BaconFest in August 2020. The three-day sizzling food festival in Queensland’s beautiful South Burnett celebrates the versatility of bacon and puts Australian pork on centre stage during the Year of the Pig.
Discover the joy of bacon fries and chocolate dipped bacon at a two-day food market featuring specialist food trucks, attend a bacon eating competition, or learn from the best in the business at cooking demonstrations.
Bacon lovers with a flare for fashion may want to enter a Miss BaconFest pinup pageant conducted by popular Brisbane based coordinator Bettie Butcher. There's even a Rasher’s Rush cycling and running event along the South Burnett Rail Trail and special activities for little piglets with a corner of the festival devoted to kids.
The crackling on the cake will be a 24 hour Australasian Barbecue Alliance sanctioned SunPork Smoke-off competition with up to 50 teams competing for a prize pool worth AUD14,000.
Ticketed events not to be missed include 'Wine and Swine' on Friday night, showcasing local wine and produce, and a 'Long Table Breakfast' on Sunday morning in Kingaroy's Central Business District.
