Petit Jean Bacon Bowl coming to Fayetteville

Food events are fun, but food events centered around bacon? Well, that's a pig of different color! Enter the Bacon Bowl, a salted, cured pork belly extravaganza sponsored by Petit Jean Meats that will be held October 26, 2013 at the Northwest Arkansas Mall in Fayetteville. Teams from Arkansas (and elsewhere) will compete to see who has the best bacon entrees and desserts, with proceeds going to benefit Youth Bridge, a non-profit that helps at-risk teens in the Northwest part of our state.

Think you have what it takes to assert your porcine supremacy? There are still spots available for teams to compete — but festival director John McClure tells us that those places are filling up fast. If any of you are interested in competing, click here for rules and entry forms.

In addition to the competition, the Bowl will have Randy Lann and the Dallas Cowboys Grill Team on hand as well as Adam Poch from season 13 of Big Brother. Egg tosses and bacon-eating competitions will round out the fun, and you will all be happy to know that the Fayetteville hospital is right down the road from the mall, just in case your ticker needs a jump.
