WILL THE EVENT BE CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER?
The Bacon and Beer Classic is a rain or shine event. Since the majority of the event is on the concourse, rain shouldn't be a problem. However, in extreme conditions, the organizers reserve the right to cancel the event. If the cancellation occurs prior to the commencement of the event, attendees will be notified of the cancellation by email.
I DON'T DRINK. CAN I STILL ATTEND?
Yes, of course! We provide a variety of non-alcoholic beverage options, as well.

WHAT ARE THE EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS AND HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?

Absolutely no beer can be removed from the festival site, nor is it available for purchase.
WILL THERE BE A PLACE TO LEAVE MY COAT?
