BEER BACON MUSIC: AN EPIC 2-DAY FESTIVAL
MAY 17 & 18, 2014 | FREDERICK, MD FAIRGROUNDS
2 days, 100+ beer varieties, 2-ton all-you-can-eat bacon bar, 50+ intriguing bacon dishes, 10 rockin’ bands
There truly will be something for everyone — from food and drink to live music and demonstrations — not to mention the largest Homebrew Competition in the world: the Brewer’s $6K!
Ok, I am there. Then what?
Once you park your car at one of the fairground’s adjacent parking lots, you’ll enter the festival through Gate 1 or Gate 2 off East Patrick Street. When you enter the festival please have your printed ticket, or be ready with your ticket pulled up on your mobile device. You will need to provide your ID so that you can receive a wristband, and a tasting glass for your beer samples. (Wristbands will not be issued to those under 21, or those who purchased a designated driver ticket). From there you will be provided with a map of the event (where you can find different breweries, vendors, bacon, and bands), and a schedule of the weekend’s events (outlining, the Brewer’s $6K Homebrew Competition winner announcements and band schedule).
Here’s an overview of the 2-day festival line-up. Obviously there will be beer, bacon and music.
In addition to that, you can expect to see:
