“This year, we doubled the amount of vendors and made sure they prepared for the amount of dishes that they were going to need to serve as well as we expanded the footprint, we doubled the footprint,” said Stephen Tuzeneu, co-founder of the festival.
“It’s almost a bit overwhelming because there's just so much but there's more room, more space so that's definitely better,” said April Hite.
In total, 40 vendors came out--each featuring dishes with bacon.
"There's bacon croissants, there's different flavors of candy bacon , there's BLT with watermelon, bacon shrimp dishes, bacon wrapped hotdogs, you name it,” said Tuzeneu.
"Fried rice with bacon and shrimp in it, it's delicious,” said Coffey.
"I'm eating coffee gelato with bacon topping,” said Hite.
And although some ran out of certain plates, many bacon lovers got couldn't be happier.
“Who doesn't love bacon, really? I mean you gotta love bacon, right?" said Mike Inge.
All of the proceeds from the festival benefit the Enrichmond Foundation, which sponsors community gardens and park programs for kids.
