What a GREAT day at the 3rd Annual Ozarks Bacon Fest! Thank you ALL for attending and making a huge success! We hope you enjoyed the Bacon, Bourbon & Beer as much as we did!

Here is a little video that Ozarks LIVE put together to show you who won the Bacon Cooking contest.


Bands at Ozarks Bacon Fest

We are proud to announce that the Wynn Family will be taking the stage at 11am, courtesy of our event sponsor GIG Salad!

Wynn Family1

The Wynn Family band will be playing Bluegrass & Country music. This band is made up of folks from the Ozarks and has strong ties to keeping Bluegrass Music alive and thriving in the region. You will enjoy them as much as you will enjoy your Bacon, Bourbon & Beer at Ozarks Bacon Fest!


The Faretheewells

The Faretheewells is a folk rock band with a bluegrass/country influence that combine country, folk, rock, and bluegrass melodies, vocal harmony, banjo and guitar solos.

With music exploding in every direction, The Faretheewells have found their place right at the roots. They blend indie, folk, rock, country and bluegrass, mix in a double shot of energy, and create an eclectic musical concoction.

The band is made up of siblings: multi-instrumentalist Shaun Chilton and Ryan Chilton on guitar and vocals.

They have a sound that has been aged in a whiskey barrel, laced with honey, and then set on fire. Whether they are playing a stripped-down lament or a boisterous barn-burner, if you are listening to this band, it is sure to be a good time!


Thanks to our event sponsor GIG Salad for providing the bands at the 3rd Annual Ozarks Bacon Fest and for the Acoustic Shoppe for providing the Sound.
