Beer & Bacon Festival
Beer & Bacon Festival enters its 7th year in 2019, acting as a social fundraiser to support the mission of the Omaha Jaycees. The Jaycees are Omaha’s longest standing young professional group and positively impact the community in a variety of ways. The proceeds from the festival allow for the Jaycees to continue to do good work and a portion feeds into a grant which is offered to non-profits in Omaha in need of funding to apply for. The event also doubles as a food competition, in conjunction with the World Food Championships, acting as Nebraska’s automatic qualifying event in the ‘Bacon Division’ for the international competition held annually in November and televised on the Food Network.
