2015 will be our second year for Bacon Labor Day!

Our inaugural event was held on Labor Day of 2014 and attracted just over 3,500 bacon fans!

What’s new for 2015?

Expanded hours – BLD is an outdoor event, held at City Park in Simpsonville, and weather is always a risk for an outdoor event.  We’re expanding to two days for 2015 – Sunday and Monday.  Traditionally these two days of the holiday weekend have been the busiest for festivals – so we’re concentrating on these two days for 2015, which also gives our vendors and attendees more chances for great weather.

More food vendors – Bacon fans will be happy to know that we have already secured more food vendors than 2014.  We certainly appreciate everyone’s feedback from last year and we’re working really hard to secure more food vendors.  Last year’s inaugural event exceeded our attendance expectations and as a first year event it’s just plain difficult to anticipate the crowd.  But after last year’s 3,500 attendance, we’re anticipating a 5,000 to 7,000 attendance over our two days and our food vendors will be happy to bring more bacon!

Amusement Rides – We’re adding 7 amusements rides for 2015 which will operate on a ticket system.  Attendees will have more activities to participate in besides our usual music, vendors, and bacon!
