2017 Bacon & Beer Festival

Festival Overview

About NH Bacon & Beer Festival

2nd Annual Bacon & Beer Festival is a fundraiser organized by High Hopes Foundation of New Hampshire – One day celebrating greasy, fatty, savory goodness of bacon, alongside the endless possibilities of flavors that have come to define well-crafted beer. We are looking to feature local restaurants and brewers to a capacity crowd, all for a good cause.

For more than 30 years, High Hopes Foundation of NH has been granting life-changing experiences to chronically and terminally ill children in our state. High Hopes Foundation of NH is proud to be a 100% volunteer organization. Learn more at www.highhopesfoundation.org.
