The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival (BRBF) is for those wise folks who know that bacon is more than just a breakfast food—it’s a lifestyle. Baconfest is an event created by devout bacon-lovers for bacon-lovers. Every year passionate people from all corners of the wide world flock to Baconfest in Des Moines, IA (the famous hog state) fixin’ to feast on tasty bacon delicacies, to get weird, and to have a grand ol’ time.
We take our community seriously. As serious as all get out. That’s why the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival has helped raise over $1,000,000 for local nonprofits through volunteering, giveaways, and donations. All this in the name of joy, community, and of course: OHHHH, BACON!
