On June 9th, the Richmond Bacon Festival was scheduled to tempt the tastebuds of Richmonders. That temptation has been canceled and at this time there are no alternative bacon opportunities beyond your local butcher and grocer.
As the City of Richmond assumes programming responsibilities of the 17th Street Market on July 1, the Enrichmond Foundation is focusing our efforts on activating other public spaces around the Richmond region with our events. It is with difficulty that we announce that we will be canceling this year’s Bacon Festival due to the need to efficiently and effectively changeover all programming to Parks and Rec.
During this transition year, we are retooling Bacon Festival to reenergize and specialize its mission to support Richmond’s parks. We hope to see you this season as we continue to celebrate Richmond’s public resources with you!
This would have been the 6th year of the festival.
