It’s All About the Pig This Weekend at BaconFest 2013 in Troy!

On Saturday July 13 – Sunday, July 14th, at the Riverfront Park in Downtown Troy, the 2013 Troy Pig Out and Bacon Fest NY will feature all of the BBQ that festival goers have come to love, in addition to ‘Bacon Alley’, a dedicated portion of festival grounds to hail the accomplishments of chefs, artisans and craftsman from around the region as they pay homage to the glory of bacon.

This festival, a virtual homage to pork, is always one of the best festivals in the state.  In fact it won a Festie Award last year as one of the top festivals of 2012!  This year several BBQ festivals (The Troy Pig Out) have combined to create one of the biggest BBQ festivals in New York.  Don’t miss the crowning of the King of New York Bar-B-Q!

The Festival Fanatics will be making an appearance at BaconFest on Saturday. We hope to see you there!
