The Bacon and Beer Classic is a one-of-a-kind event hosted inside baseball parks and stadiums across America.

As the attendees walk through the stadium they will get a taste of history through the hundreds of craft brew samples and mouth-watering bacon-inspired tastes local restaurants cook up. Music will get people dancing, interactive games will bring out their inner kid, and the cooking demos and beer schools will teach everyone – from the expert to the novice – a thing or two about bacon and beer.  All of our events are all inclusive! From the moment you walk into the park, it's all about the experience, and not about opening up your wallet.
