The Happening of the Summer
As the warm breezes roll in and the long summer days stretch before us—it can only mean one thing! It’s time, once again, for Newport’s much-loved Bacon, Bourbon, and Brew Festival.
After a tiresome year that saw many of our favorite events sidelined due to the pandemic, the return of this flavorful fest is truly a ray of sunshine for event-goers, food lovers and festival enthusiasts alike. Truly, nothing says summer quite like sizzling bacon, smooth bourbon, handcrafted brews, live music, and the camaraderie of festival-goers reveling in a good time.
The Much Awaited Comeback
With its official announcement, local socials have been buzzing about the impending Bourbon, Bacon, and Brew extravaganza. The event, affectionately known as the ‘Triple B’ to the locals, is an undeniable summer staple for Newport and a fan favorite far beyond its city limits.
The festival was sorely missed last year, and its rejuvenated return only amplifies the anticipation and excitement surrounding it. Fans are eagerly awaiting an opportunity to, once again, partake in the festivities and all the delightful delicacies that come with it.
A Festival with Flair
As its title suggests, this festival, which is to be held along Newport’s scenic riverfront, revolves primarily around three things: bacon, bourbon, and brews. Each of these alone would be enough to lure in a crowd, but together, they pack a punch that’s hard to resist.
But don’t be fooled, although bacon, bourbon and beer are the highlight, you’ll also find an amazing assortment of other food and drink options to delight your palate. Think barbecued delights, sweet treats, and a myriad of other food vendors to satiate all your food cravings.
Fun Beyond the Food
Beyond the enticing aroma of bacon and the flavorful punch of bourbon, the festival is also host to a variety of other entertainments and attractions. There will be an array of live music acts to keep you entertained as you savor your food and drink, with performances from several local and national musicians.
Let the Games Begin
To add to the festivities, there’s even a beloved feature that sees local restaurants and culinary students face off in a spirited cooking challenge. With bacon as the theme ingredient, these competitions are both fun and delicious, often resulting in innovative recipes that leave everyone, including professional judges, awestruck.
So cheers to Newport’s beloved summer tradition! Whether you’re a local or a tourist, a food lover or a music lover, this festival promises an unforgettable time. With its return marking a rare bright spot in these challenging times, we can’t wait to indulge in the best of Bourbon, Bacon, and Brew. Here’s hoping you’ll join us in making the most of this summertime favorite!
