This world is a wonderful place. But what if there was more love? More understanding? And
most of all...more bacon? For one weekend a year, the world gets a glimpse of just how good it could be. Welcome to The Great Big Bacon Picnic.

Building on the tremendous, bacon-level success of its inaugural 2015 season, The Great Big Bacon Picnic once again promises to deliver the finest, unlimited bacon and bacon-inspired delicacies and pair them with appropriate bacon complements:

Local craft beers and top-shelf spirits served at multiple bars
Live music from High & Mighty Brass Band
Games (can you say Bacon Toss?), gratifications and goings on
Good vibes served up in a friendly, festive atmosphere

And of course, a "food coma" napping area where you can relax, refresh and then get back to enjoying your love, your goal, your raison d’etre: as much bacon as you can possibly relish.

So join over 100 of the finest chefs, restaurants, food trucks, brew masters, distillers and
culinary experts from NYC on September 24-25, and see why The Great Big Bacon Picnic is
what other food festivals aspire to be when they grow up.
