It's time to plan out your weekend activities with the 101X Weekend Guide, brought to you by UNation. Keep on scrolling to find some of the best events happening near you!
SEP 7th & 8th | 11 AM - 3 PM |
Palm Door on Sixth
Did someone say bacon?? For those of you bacon lovers out there (which is basically anyone, ever) you are going to be begging for more after Austin's first-ever Bacon Festival. Even after two whole days, yes two days, back to back, of all the bacon you could only dream of. Your body will hate you for it afterward but that's beside the point.
Here's what you can expect. Each day will feature a handful of vendors, some will be there for both days of the festival, others will only be participating one day so be sure to check out the lineup of vendors beforehand. Some of the vendors you will see are The Bearded Baking Company, Hideaway Kitchen and Bar, Teal House Coffee and Bakery, La Table du Chef, and Plow Distribution just to name a few.
There will be other treats as well as drinks compliment all of the tasty bacon. You will also get to enjoy live music both days in addition to a few surprises!
