In Edmonton, there now seems to be a festival on every weekend and for every interest.

Pork fans have had it pretty good this summer. Last month, Hawrelak Park was host to Porkapoolza.

This Friday, Old Strathcona will be the home of the first annual BaconFestYEG.

The official Bacon Meister of BaconFestYEG joined Edmonton AM’s Mark Connolly on Wednesday to dish about this tribute to many people’s favourite food.
