Kingaroy Baconfest

Kingaroy

UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK IN SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND THE KINGAROY BACONFEST HAS BEEN CANCELLED. 

Enjoy a 'pig day out' at the Kingaroy Baconfest, a sizzling 3-day food festival held in Southern Queensland Country's beautiful South Burnett region from August 20-22, 2021.

This crackling porker of a festival celebrates the versatility of bacon and puts Australian pork on centre stage during the Year of the Pig.

Discover the joy of bacon fries and chocolate dipped bacon at a two-day food market featuring specialist food trucks, attend a bacon eating competition, or learn from the best in the business at cooking demonstrations and master classes.

Bacon lovers with a flare for fashion may want to enter a Miss BaconFest pinup pageant conducted by popular pinup icon Bettie Butcher. There’s even a Rasher’s Rush cycling and running event along the South Burnett Rail Trail and special activities for little piglets with a corner of the festival devoted to kids.

The crackling on the cake will be a 24 hour Australasian Barbecue Alliance sanctioned SunPork Smoke-off competition, with up to 50 teams competing for a prize pool worth $14,000.

Ticketed events not to be missed include ‘Wine and Swine’ on Friday night, showcasing local wine and produce, and a ‘Long Table Breakfast’ on Sunday morning in Kingaroy’s Central Business District.

Kingaroy and surrounds have many great places to stay, from holiday parks and motels to B&Bs and charming self-contained cottages.
