Let’s squeal together about our bacon community!

Kingaroy BaconFest is a two-day sizzling food festival (with a Friday night Wine and Swine cocktail party) that celebrates the versatility of bacon and puts Australian pork on centre stage.

Bacon lovers will experience the bacon eating competition, live music, fashion parades, celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, markets and most importantly delicious foods that showcase bacon!

Where else would you celebrate Bacon but in Kingaroy?! We thank one of the largest employers in our South Burnett Region, and Kingaroy BaconFest’s Naming Rights sponsor, SunPork Fresh Foods.

The levels of pork passion are out of this world when it comes to Evalyn. The chief wants nothing more than a sizzlin’ good time for everyone; welcome to bacon country!

Deputy Chief/ Logistics Coordinator

Mark

Mark my words! A man of many hats and as happy as pig in mud. He’s got BaconFest covered in several departments, including chief beer tester (self-appointed).

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
Secretary

Kylie

Ready to tackle any task with bacon-fueled enthusiasm, Kylie is our ninja Secretary. She may seem quiet, but a Cowboys footy game quickly changes that – no porkies about it!

Treasurer

Megan

Megan is a treasure(r); the salt to our crackling! It’s far from a boar-ing job and BaconFest wouldn’t sizzle without her keen eye on our piggy bank.

Stallholders

Anuj

It wouldn’t be a festival without a drove of stalls to get your swine share. With an eye for quality assurance, Anuj will grease the wheels and make sure you won’t say “that’s enough bacon”.

Local rockstar Tony will have your trotters tapping with the entertainment he’s got lined up for you! One little piggy went to the market, but this little piggy went to the dance floor.
