bacon2DES MOINES, Iowa – In seven years, bacon fest has become one of the hottest tickets in town and it’s now outgrown its current venue.

The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival is moving from the Iowa State Fairgrounds to the Iowa Events Center.

Organizers say moving to the center will allow more people to attend and more restaurants to get involved, while keeping it all under one roof.

The bacon festival will take over both Hy-Vee Hall and the convention center covering four levels.

This year’s bacon festival sold out its 13,500 tickets in less than an hour. In 2015, 17,000 tickets will be up for grabs.

The event is January 31st.
