Merging two popular meat-centric events, the Island Recreation Center brings the Burgers, Bacon & BBQ festival to Shelter Cove on Oct. 7.
Local restaurants will serve their best burgers, bacon dishes and barbecue to compete for votes, while more than 20 brews will be on tap in the beer garden sponsored by Ocean Woods. The Kid Zone will have plenty of moon bounces and games, and live music will be featured throughout the day on two stages.
College football fans won’t have to worry about missing their favorite team play. A viewing area with a big screen television will be at the event.
This is the first year for Burger, Bacon & BBQ. The Island Recreation Center merged Burgers & Brew (held in October) with Beer, Bacon & Music (held in May) to create this new carnivorous event. Past events drew 3,000 people, and organizers are expecting a similar crowd this year.
