- Big Bite Bacon Fests welcome bacon lovers of all ages and feature an unprecedented variety of delectable bites showcasing the diversity of bacon. Innovative food options range from sweet desserts, accented with savory cracklins to addictively salty culinary creations.
- Bacon-tasting sessions are offered for guests to sample bacon inspired culinary dishes from local restaurants and vendors from the Southern California region.
- Craft beer tastings from local breweries will be available to quench your thirst from all the bacon goodness.
- Bacon themed entertainment will also be on hand at both festivals, starting with the opening ceremonies that include the "Bacon Anthem" and "Pardoning of The Pig." Additional attractions keep the theme alive through games like Pig Pong, Pork Ladder Toss, Bacon Hole, a Big Daddy Bacon Pageant, and a dunk tank.
- The events celebrate home cooks and professional chefs alike through a fully sanctioned cooking competition in honor of the star ingredient. Professional and amateur levels call on the best chefs and home cooks in Southern California to compete for their stake in a $3,000 prize fund and the title of "Best Big Bite Bacon Dish." Entry is $39 and first place winners will be sent on to the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, NV in November. 1st place winner takes home $1,700 in prize money with paid entry and travel stipend to compete in Las Vegas; 2nd place takes home $800; 3rd place rounds out the victors with a $500 cash prize. Last year's BBBF contest winners went on to the World Championships and finished 4th place for the amateurs, and 1st place for the pros winning the grand prize of $10,000 and the title of Bacon World Champion.
