Additionally, there will be games, music, and a bacon eating contest with the grand prize of... [drumroll] ...more bacon.
The ticket price varies by city but falls between $59 and $125. The organizers promise that the ticket will give you access to more than 100 beers and more than 30 food vendors in each city.
A general admission ticket gets you three hours of unlimited bacon and beer. There's also a ticket level that adds a "Power Hour" to that GA ticket. You'll be admitted to the fest an hour earlier than everyone else, which means shorter lines and an extra hour to test your body's metabolism. A VIP ticket gets you exclusive dishes not available to anyone else and the extra hour, among a few other perks.
