If you’re a bacon fiend like many other people, you’ll be in good company at the Southwest Bacon Fest in Albuquerque, New Mexico. If you’re planning on making a trip to the southwest this fall, be sure not to miss this. In addition to the usual bacon-centric activities you could imagine being present at a bacon festival—things like bacon recipe contests—there will be plenty of other ways to keep yourself and your family entertained.

It wouldn’t be a Bacon Fest without plenty of smoky deliciousness in the form of more than a dozen vendors who have dreamed up some of the most indulgent bacon creations you can think of. From bacon beer and coffee to bacon cornbread and bacon waffles, and even deep fried bacon and bacon candy, you’ll be sure to get your fill of this porky treat. Enter the Best Bacon Bite contest for your chance at glory. The winner of the Best Bacon Bite contest will be granted a spot in the World Bacon Championships, which takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Other Albuquerque Offerings
Of course, when you’re visiting Albuquerque for Bacon Fest, you’ll (maybe) need something that isn’t bacon to hold your attention. For that reason, you’ll love staying near Old Town, where you can get some shopping done, or visit one of the area’s several museums. If you’re too tuckered out after all that bacon-ing, simply retire back to your hotel, take a dip in the pool, and get a good night’s rest.
