A festival unlike any other, the Classic will bring over 30 local restaurants and 50 regional breweries into the iconic home of the San Francisco 49ers to serve up original bacon-infused dishes and craft beers. A panel of judges will be on site to rate the food and drink and award winners in select categories.
In addition to unlimited sampling, guests can try their hand at giant Jenga, strike a pose at the photo booth, battle it out on the bungee run, brand themselves with bacon and beer-inspired tattoos, compete in a bacon eating contest, and more. The first place winner of the bacon eating contest will take home a year of Hormel® Black Label® bacon and the second place winner will take home a Duff Goldman gift basket from Tylina Foods.
Kate Levenstien, founder of Cannonball Productions and the Bacon and Beer Classic, is thrilled to host the Classic at Levi’s® Stadium for the second time. “Levi’s® Stadium is an absolutely beautiful backdrop for the event and I can’t wait to get on the field! From more ticket types, to new vendors and exciting VIP lounge additions, guests can expect the same festival with a fresh twist and a few surprises.”
Guests can attend the afternoon (1-4pm) or evening (7-10pm) session on Saturday. For the first time, a Power Hour ticket is being offered along with General Admission, Early Access, and VIP tickets. Early Access ticket holders enter half an hour early while Power Hour and VIP ticket holders enter a full hour early. In addition to their early entrance, VIPs enjoy a private lounge on the 50 yard line, stadium tours, special guest appearances, beer cocktails, exclusive food tastings, and more.
As always, the Bacon and Beer Classic is all-inclusive. General Admission tickets are currently selling at $69 and VIP tickets are selling at $129. All tickets include a commemorative tasting glass and access to the Bacon and Beer Classic mobile app for vendor information, special partner discounts, a stadium map, and more.
Hosted in sports stadiums across the country, the Bacon and Beer Classic will travel to over seven destinations in 2017, including NYC’s Citi Field, Denver’s Mile High Stadium, and Seattle’s Safeco Field. Cannonball Productions works hard to make this national festival feel unique to each city. Along with a variety of charitable organizations, Cannonball Productions is partnering with a local food recovery program to save and donate leftover food.
