About NH Bacon & Beer Festival

4th 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 35 years, High Hopes Foundation has provided Life-enhancing Experiences to New Hampshire's chronically ill children. Our guiding principle is to make hope happen. Learn more at www.highhopesfoundation.org.
