September 19, 2019

What started out as a brainstorm in a saloon transformed into the largest free bacon festival in the nation, according to organizers of the event. The River Falls Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau hosted the seventh annual Bacon Bash festival. Located in Heritage Park, the festival took place on Saturday, Sept. 14, and Sunday, Sept. 15.

Some sponsors of different events included, Our Town Has It and the Minnesota Blues Society.
Bacon Bash had over 35 different bacon dishes from local and regional restaurants, vendors and food trucks. Last summer, the festival saw over 10,000 attendees.
