Richmond Bacon Festival returns for its second year this Sunday June 8th from 11am to 5pm at the 17th St Farmers Market in Shockoe Bottom.  To combat the overcrowding that plagued the event last year, organizers have more than doubled the venue to now include 17th from Main St. to Grace Street, West to Ambler St. and East to 18th St.  Two separate beer trucks on Grace and Franklin streets are another improvement as shown on the map below.

You can take a look at all of the bacon dishes to be served below but here are a few dishes I am particularly intrigued by:

  • Alchemy Coffee – Maple bacon latte
  • Dash – Hawaiian grilled cheese w/ bacon, pork belly, pineapple & swiss
  • Gelati Celesti – Maple waffles & bacon ice cream  or  Salted caramel bacon brownie ice cream
  • Halligan’s Bar & Grill  – Twice smoked bacon wrapped black angus beef brisket
  • King of Pops – Chocolate bacon ice pops or Cookies N’ Cream & bacon ice pops
  • Mosaic – Pork meatball sliders w/ smokey bacon blue cheese

Here is the full beer list from Taste the Local along with a few of my favorite or “new to me” DB beers in bold:
