In Simpsonville, we don’t just celebrate Labor day, we also celebrate Bacon Day!
This event started last year and is happening again this year with more bang! And the event is expanding into two days – Sunday and Monday! It will begin Sunday, the day before Labor Day at the City Park from noon to 10 pm and will be open again on Labor Day from 10 am till 6 pm.
More vendors will be present this year to indulge you bacon fanatics, there will be a wide variety of food to enjoy this year, all with bacon! Last year, chocolate covered bacon was a huge hit, thanks to the wonderful creation of Exchange and Co, you will also find other favorites; bacon-wrapped shrimp and turkey legs, bacon gouda cheese, bacon funnel cakes, bacon cupcakes, bacon ice cream and much more.
But this event is not only to celebrate bacon, it is a fun-filled event for the whole family. The kids will surely enjoy the amusement rides and pig-themed games.
