I would hate to be the one who has to clean out the grease pit when the festival is over.

If you end up in the New England area, VT has its own Bacon Fest.

https://www.brattleborochamber.org/e...n-blues-brews/

They even did a pretty impressive campaign to try get Kevin Bacon to attend:

Well, we made it to the Bacon Festival. Didn't get there until around 2:30pm and it was a little sparse. Not really a destination festival. The best thing was a young lady in a bacon costume who was very personable and greeted us at the entrance. Pretty much saw everything and tasted a few things in about a half an hour.
