A Massive Bacon & Beer Festival Is Coming To The Tampa Area In January

Bacon & Booze? We're so ready.

Most of us can probably agree that beer and bacon are two of life's greatest pleasures, so, what happens if we find them both in one place with the addition of music, entertainment, and fun? A recipe for an amazing time, of course, and this is happening soon. A massive bacon and beer festival is coming near Tampa this January, so be prepared to live this dream-come-true to the fullest.

The 4th Annual St. Pete Beer and Bacon Festival is happening in St. Pete on January 18, 2020, and you will enjoy more than 50 different mouthwatering bacon preparations and a variety of crafts beers.

General admission is only $15 right now, but you can grab the Grand Sample admission tickets for early birds at only $39. VIP tickets are yet to be on sale. Offers are available until December 13.

The Grand Sample admission ticket gives access to 4 hours unlimited drink sampling of craft beers, ciders, hard watersand margaritas, Bloody Mary's & other cocktails. You can also sip samples of spirits like tequila, rum, whiskey, and vodka out of your commemorative drink sampling cup

Enjoy bacon dishes from more than 20 vendors, and to drink you may pick from over 75 different beers and more than 20 craft spirits & cocktails.

The event will take place at Vinoy Park, in St. Petersburg, from 12:00 to 7:00 p.m. Drink sampling will be happening from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Beyond the food and booze options, this event is all about the fun. The fest will feature music by The Black Honkeys and other bands. You will also be able to play a variety of games, have a great time relaxing and making new friends, and have the chance to win various prizes throughout the day. 

All the action is happening outdoors, so organizers inform it will be a rain or shine fest. They will be providing tents, tables, and chairs for festival-goers comfort. Although it is not a family-friendly event per se, kids and pets are also welcome too. A portion of the proceeds goes to benefit the Pet Pal Animal Shelter in downtown St. Pete.
