Iowa Events Center
The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival will return to all four levels of the Iowa Events Center on February 16, 2019. Every year, festival organizers have announced a theme for the bacon community to embrace. From Baconmania’s wrestling to Sweatin’ to the Sizzle’s 1980’s workouts, everyone cuts loose to take part in the bacon madness. The 2019 theme, “Hello Piggy – East Meats West,” will pay homage to both the Year of the Pig on the Chinese Zodiac Calendar and the pork-filled relationship Iowans have built with the people of Yamanashi Prefecture in Japan since sending them 36 pigs almost 60 years ago.
