Hey mon! We’re looking forward to wearing some leighs and drinking some baconritas with you on Saturday! Have some questions about the festival? Look no further!


The festival ISN’T DOWNTOWN? Well where is it?

Horizon Event Center 2100 NW 100th St, Clive, IA 50325


Where do I park?

There’s limited parking available at the event center and it’s on a first come, first serve basis. We highly recommend you either:

  • Catch an Uber / Lyft

  • Park at Valley West Mall and grab a shuttle – we will have free shuttles moving between Horizon and Valley West Mall all day long

I bought a table ticket – how does that work?

Each table ticket can be scanned 10 times. All other tickets can only be scanned once. You may provide hardcopy or softcopy for those attendees at your table


Do I need to bring money?

General Admission ticketholders will receive $10 in bacon bucks upon entry and all other ticketholders (Early Entry, Table of 10) will receive $20 in bacon bucks. You can use your bacon bucks to purchase baconritaville inspired dishes and drinks from various restaurants and vendors throughout the venue. Credit cards are accepted and an ATM is available onsite if you’d like to purchase more bacon bucks.


Can I leave and re-enter the event?

Yes. You’ll receive a wristband upon entry which will allow re-entry.


Is Horizon big enough for this many bacon lovers?

Yes! Horizon’s concerts are in one wing of the building. There are so many bacon lovers that we’re taking over the rest of the building for an epic party!


Can I bring my kid? They love bacon too!

The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival is a 21+ year old event only


What other advice do you have for me?

Keep an eye out for flying sharks. Yes, there are fins to the left and fins to the right at this festival!
