A ‘bacon-themed bash’ is a part of Ok-Days in Edmonton this 12 months

Looks like we’ve gotta be making the most of bacon soon! BaconFest will be joining K-Days in Edmonton for the first time ever this year. And naturally, it’s bringing a larger-than-life celebration of that oh so tasty treat. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect.

Billed as a ‘whole hog celebration of bacon’, BaconFest at K-Days will see a variety of local restaurants and other names create bacon-focused dishes from the classics to the, well, confusing. A bacon-wrapped street dog? Yeah, we can get behind that. ‘Bacon sushi’? That might only be tried on a dare.

While the full lineup of participating restaurants has yet to be released, a number of names have come forward for the big day. These are:

  • ThreeVikings
  • Destination donuts
  • Spotlight Cabaret
  • Central Social Hall

Alongside them, expect refreshments from Rig Hand Spirits, live performances from Johnny Cash and Elvis impersonators, and even a little comedy show. Tickets for the event are sold separately, but include admission to K-Days and one free sample from each vendor who participates.

Keep it in mind during the larger festival, folks!
