Coshocton, Ohio

September 1st & 2nd, 2017

     Returning for its 3rd year, Appalachian Bacon Nation organizers are excited about several new elements to be included in this year's festival including a (free) family bacon and pancake breakfast sponsored by Coshocton County Fatherhood Initiative.


     Continued events will include bacon eating contest, bacon cooking contest, kids play area, Bacon King and Queen, live entertainment, beer garden, even more bacon food vendors, craft vendors, 5K "Bacon and Legs" run sponsored by Pyle Financial  and even more!


     In 2014, with the help of Kraft Foods, Coshocton County Career Center and Warehouse Steak N Stein, we built the (unofficial) world’s largest BLT with over 800 lbs. of bacon! This year plans are in the works for a different record breaking bacon dish!


     And of course, the ABN festival would not exist without the inspiration and cooperation of Kraft Foods and Oscar Mayer Bacon located in Coshocton Ohio. With the recent expansion of Kraft foods, many new jobs have been created in our community…and that’s a great reason to celebrate!
