Ottumwa is the bacon capitol of the US – and we celebrate with BaconTown! at Bridgeview Center Saturday November 23rd from Noon-6pm. Over 2,300 pounds of JBS provided bacon are dolled out to around 20 local chefs who create 50+ bacon dishes from savory to sweet. There’s even locally brewed bacon beer from Albia Brewing Company. Admission is free, but if you want to try the bacon items, they are generally $1 each. Trust us when we say that the $1 helpings are plentiful!
As if great tasting bacon wasn’t enough, KIIC transforms the Bridgeview Center into a quaint ‘town’ scene using several hundred feet of Broadway backdrops – along with special lighting.
Live entertainment will be provided by Tony Blew 12-2:30 and the Marshall County Hangmen from 3-6.
From 6-8pm, experience the Sizzle of ‘BaconTown after Dark’ from 6-8pm with special live entertainment including aerialists, stilt-walkers, drink specials, club music and lighting and more. Its our version of Club Sizzle from 6-8pm for adults 21+.
