Written by Brittany Page

The Bacon & Banjos festival will be held on May 19, 11:00am-6:00pm, at Northside Hospital - Cherokee Amphitheater.

Presented by, this first annual festival will feature a convergence of bacon-flavored food and the downhome sounds of bluegrass music all in one event.

Focusing on the music of north Georgia favorites such as Cedar Hill, Curtis Jones and Primal Roots, The Wiseman Brothers, Frances Mooney and Fontana Sunset, Honeywood, and Blue Road will take to the main stage throughout the day. Festival-goers can browse food and restaurant vendors that will be selling their best bacon creations. These creations will also be sampled by a panel of judges for Bacon & Banjos accolades.

In addition, the festival will include a craftsman alley with rustic creations for sale.

The concept of the festival came from the City of Woodstock’s Parks and Recreation Department staff who are also hosting the festival.

A portion of the day’s proceeds will benefit the Woodstock Public Safety Foundation, a not for profit organization dedicated to improving and maintaining the quality of life for the citizens of Woodstock and to make the communities of Woodstock a safer place to live and work through partnerships between the citizens, the Woodstock Police and Woodstock Fire Departments.

The event is rain or shine, and the entry fee is $5.00.
