Kingaroy looks set to get a crackling new festival next August … the inaugural Kingaroy Bacon Fest.
The festival will focus on everything pork and bacon from August 24-26.
Planning is still in the early stages, but the event is expected to centre around a pork industry conference hosted by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries in Kingaroy Town Hall.
There will also be markets with food stalls featuring pork, a Wine and Swine cocktail party and a regional barbecue competition.
Pork is a mainstay of the South Burnett economy, overtaking peanuts in regional importance.
More information about the event will be released on the organisers’ Facebook page
