SECOND ANNUAL

BACON & BARRELS

FEBRUARY 2023

AT THE JACKSON COUNTY EXPO

We are saddened to let you know we need to cancel the 2022 Bacon and Barrels event.

The ever-evolving pandemic has challenged our event in several ways. While the event is small and manageable in terms of patrons, the servers and the bacon teams are not available at this time. The event is scheduled on a major weekend; Valentine's AND the Super Bowl. Each of the teams we talked with either had other engagements that weekend or could not spare a teammate to cook & serve due to staffing shortages.

Born from the “Bacon and Bourbon festivals” around the nation… the Jackson County Expo and Ubhill One Concessions have created Bacon and Barrels for Southern Oregon! This event offers participants' extensive bacon sampling, distilled spirit samples, whiskey lectures, bacon-inspired appetizer samples, live entertainment, and even a full bacon bloody Mary bar!
