Holidays are reasons to indulge, whether eating your weight in turkey on Thanksgiving, BBQ on the 4th of July, or bacon on Labor Day. At least that's become a tradition here in San Jose. Festivals simply don't get any more over-the-top delicious than this one! Celebrating its 3rd year, the Bacon Festival of America has quickly grown into an all-out swine-lover's paradise, with more than 15,000 people expected at this year's extravaganza.
Bacon, Beer, Live Music, Wrestling, & More BACON!
The price of admission includes access to live entertainment all day, including two stages of music (one for local bands, the other DJs), and a no-holds-barred wrestling exhibition with a wild troop of performers / athletes grappling in a day-long rumble for the Championship Bacon Belt. As for the food, all plates of everything bacon are priced at $6 or less, so you can taste them all! Some of the best (and zaniest) include:
- Bacon S'mores (roasted over an open fire!)
- Lobster Bacon Tacos
- Bacon Bread Pudding
- Bacon Doughnuts
- Bacon Ice Cream
- Bacon Pot Pies
- Bacon Lemonade
- Bacon Peanut Brittle
Stick Around for the Night Market
In past years the festival has been followed by a bustling Night Market, so plan on sticking around after the sun goes down. And don't forget a blanket for lazing in the grass, just 15 minutes from our central Silicon Valley hotel.
