Punters can anticipate a ‘pig day out’ at the Kingaroy BaconFest in August 2024. The three-day sizzling food festival in Queensland’s beautiful South Burnett celebrates the versatility of bacon and puts Australian pork on centre stage. Discover the joy of bacon fries and bacon ice cream 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 and masterclasses. We showcase celebrity chefs like Miguel Maestre, Alastair MacLeod, Dan and Steph Mulheron, with special appearances of local produce and butcher wars contestants. You can enjoy Ready, Steady Bacon on the stage, listen to the stories and Flavours of Our Land with Carl Rackemann or just chill out to music all weekend. Bacon lovers with a flair for fashion may want to enter a BaconFest pinup pageant or Beard of BaconFest contest conducted by popular pinup icon 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. 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....
