Love Bacon? And who doesn’t? This is the event for you! Big Bite Baconfest is back in its 2nd year at the Queen Mary and will be better than ever! This year, dozens of restaurants and chefs will be on hand for their bacon-rific creations! Due to the growth of this event, attendance will be dispersed into three different sessions. (See Below)
This “B” letter trifecta event will feature Bacon, Beer, and a Big Ship called the Queen Mary. Okay, so the last “B” I couldn’t find a good fit for words, but the good news is all paid entrants get a self guided tour to the Queen Mary.
You can chomp down bacon sample goodness at this event from Slaters 50/50 B’B’B’ Bacon Burgers to Fry Fry truck’s bacon filled twinkies! If that doesn’t sound intringuing enough, Artesana Pops will bring their bacon ice pops and Dia De Los Puercos will offer their infamous hog pocket, Yes I’m referring to that crazy PB&J empanada with their churro dust, condensed milk, and bacon!
Local breweries samples will include Absolution, Angel City Brewing, ACE Cider, Bootlegger’s Brewery, Coronado Brewing, Drake’s, Golden Road Brewery, Ninkasi Brewery, Sam Adams, Speakeasy, Stone Brewing, and The Dudes Brewing. Different breweries will be at various sessions. Make sure you double check the BigBite event website to see which session has your favorite brewery. Beer tastings are additional.
Bored? Entertainment at the festival includes Radio Domingo Band playing next to the beautiful Long Beach Harbor. Or you can strut over to the Pig Pen area where you can dabble in pork-inspired games and activities including Pork Ladder Toss, Bacon Bags (Fancy word for Cornhole), Connect Swine and even Bacon Chess.
If you want to opt for the VIP tickets where you can get in an hour earlier and have access to exclusive piggie goodies such as Bacon Babe’s dark chocolate bacon tarts with cinnamon whiskey buttercream and Bundt’s on Melrose’s maple bacon mini Bundt cakes. VIPs will also have access to the piggie lounge area with shaded seating , a souvenir cup, and access to private restrooms.
This year Big Bite Bacon Fest is honored and proud to partner with Team Red, White and Blue (Team RWB) as the official charity of the 2015 festival. Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by reintegrating them back into their communities.
The 3 different sessions are as follows. I’ll be pigging out, will you?
