Bacon Festival Fairbanks
Friday May 22 - Saturday May 23, 2015
On May 22, 1906, a fire devastated Fairbanks.
The first fire hydrants had been installed just a few weeks prior
and when all the hoses in town were deployed there was not enough
pressure to quench the blaze. When tasked with what to do the
NC Machine shop manager called for sides of bacon to be thrown
in the boiler to increase the temperature.
It was thus that more than a ton of bacon was burned that day
to save our town. What better reason to celebrate this salty meat!
Bacon saved our Bacon. Let's Party!
