Get ready to indulge your senses with the three B’s – beach, bacon and beer - at this event that is loaded with great tastes and ample ways to dive in and feast with decadence. Held in the heart of Carolina Beach, the Beach, Bacon and Beer Festival is a friendly and competitive event where local chefs will whip up a host of bacon-inspired dishes to the delight of judges and the general public alike.

The event has a number of local chefs and eateries all competing for a number of coveted titles, which includes Judges Choice, People’s Best Overall, Most Original, Best Savory and Sweetest, and the Best Decorated Tent and Most Enthusiastic Tent.

With so many bacon-inspired dishes, as well as ample opportunities to explore brews and the cool Cape Fear beach scene, this annual event is always a crowd-pleaser for foodies of all ages. Tickets are available online in advance, and kids 12 and under can dine for free at this unique food festival that focuses on the best and most beloved ingredients in the Carolina Beach area.
