While the Kingaroy BaconFest celebrates everything porcine, it also supports local producers and raises funds for drought affected farmers.
More than 8000 visitors chomped their way through a variety of bacon products last year and organisers are preparing for even bigger crowds this year.
The festival kicks off with a Wine and Swine cocktail event on the Friday evening, followed the next morning by a cycling and running event, Rasher’s Rush.
There will be bacon eating competitions, a Miss BaconFest pin-up pageant, a two-day bacon themed food market and cooking demonstrations by celebrity chef, Adrian Richardson the host of television cooking show Secret Meat Business.
