We want to thank you all for being so patient in waiting for information on this years Bacon fest Portage and we appreciate you giving us time to sort some things out. We unfortunately have some bad news, due to the construction that will be taking place at Founders Square Park we will not be able to do Bacon fest Portage this year. We have spent the last 3 months trying to figure out a place that could successfully accommodate this type and size of event in Portage and after meeting with several different places in Portage we unfortunately do not have a place that we feel comfortable in hosting this event.
When planning an event like this there are many different things you have to look at; Parking, shade, access, location and entrance and exits are all major priorities which we do not believe any other place in Portage would be able to accommodate an event of this size. Although we will be canceling this years event we plan on doing Bacon fest bigger and better in 2015. Bacon fest 2015 will be an amazing event with our great City building a splash pad, indoor restrooms and picnic area in Founders Square Park which will add to the overall great experience of the event. We know a lot of you are disappointed with this news, we are too, but we want to put on a successful event that is done with excellence because the amazing people of Portage deserve it. We want to thank you for your understanding in this matter and we apologize again for the postponing of this event and we look forward to seeing you again in 2015.
