What could be better than an entire Festival dedicated to bacon? You guessed it. Nothing.
SunPork Fresh Foods travelled to Kingaroy QLD, where we were proud to sponsor the Kingaroy Bacon Festival 2018 and held our very first ‘SunPork Smoke Off’ ABA sponsored BBQ Competition!
The festival was held over an entire weekend, where events such as a ‘Wine and Swine’ cocktail party, a ‘Kevin Bacon Film Festival’, a ‘rasher run’ and a Bacon eating competition wafted their way through the main streets of Kingaroy.
We had beautiful sunny weather on Saturday and got an influx of people from around the South Burnett region and Brisbane, eager to gorge on crispy bacon and check out the entertainment around the festival.
Our Hot Pink stand was busy all weekend, handing out balloons and bags of pig poo (relax – its chocolate!) to lucky kids who could toss a ball through our little piggies mouth. We sampled our Three Aussie Farmers Pulled Pork, Pork Porterhouse and Pork Ribs, cooked a Whole Hog on a spit and held Bacon, Pulled Pork and Pork Rib masterclasses. We also ran a Flight Centre Competition where you got to Spin & Win for instant prizes!
SunPork Fresh Foods also held the inaugural ABA Sponsored BBQ competition, the ‘SunPork Smoke Off’. Congratulations to our sponsored BBQ team Manning Valley Natural Smokers who took home the Grand Champions title this year!
The weekend was chokka-block full of Bacon, Pork and delicious local produce from around Kingaroy and the South Burnett region.
After such a successful first year – we’re hopeful that this festival will be held yearly on the last weekend in August – so if you love bacon and want to check out all the action, book it in for August 2019!
