All things bacon will be celebrated at the second annual BaconFest in Kingaroy from August 23- 25 2019.

While the festival celebrates everything porcine, it also supports local producers and raises funds for drought affected farmers.

More than 8000 visitors chomped their way through a variety of bacon products last year and organisers are preparing for even bigger crowds this year.

The festival kicks off with a Wine and Swine cocktail event on the Friday evening, followed the next morning by a cycling and running event, Rasher’s Rush.

There will be bacon eating competitions, a Miss BaconFest pin-up pageant, a two-day bacon themed food market and cooking demonstrations by celebrity chef, Adrian Richardson the host of television cooking show Secret Meat Business.
