Bernie’s Wines & Liquors’ Bacon & Beer Festival

Coming off a sold-out 2017 event, Bernie’s Wines & Liquors’ Bacon & Beer Festival is relocating to the FARGODOME for the biggest and best year yet of celebrating swine and suds! The fifth annual festival is the region’s original bacon and beer event and will again bring together 20+ bacon dishes from local restaurants and over 125 craft beers from local and national breweries. All samples are included in the price of admission.

“When we started this event five years ago, I wasn’t ever sure it would be big enough to move to the FARGODOME but after seeing the demand for tickets last year we knew this was the right time. Moving to the larger space allows us to increase our capacity but also gives patrons the opportunity to move more freely throughout the event and get through lines quicker creating a better quality event,” said Jade Nielsen, President of Jade Presents, “The Dome also offers us potential to have more restaurants and breweries than we’ve ever had before.”

Making their Bacon & Beer Festival debut are new local favorites Prairie Brothers Brewing Company and Wild Terra Cider & Brewing. Attendees will have access to a variety of games and entertainment at the festival including giant beer pong, cornhole, the always-popular mechanical pig, photo booth, and live music. All attendees will also receive a complimentary event pint glass.

VIP EXPERIENCE
• 90-minute early entry
• Commemorative event gift
• Commemorative pint glass
• BLT Bar
• Bloody Mary Bar sponsored by Stoli Vodka
• Unlimited bacon snacks
• Unlimited beer samples
• Live entertainment
• Limited availability

Sponsors for the 2018 festival include Hatch Realty, North Dakota Pork Council, Fargo Brewing Co., and Stoli Vodka.

Tickets are available at the FARGODOME Box Office (1800 N University Dr; Hours: Monday-Friday 10 A.M to 5 P.M.), by calling 855-694-6367, or online at baconandbeerfargo.com.
