Bacon Expo is a family-friendly event that brings Iowans (and even some out-of-staters) together, all for the love of bacon. While attendees snack on traditional bacon strips and unique bacon items (previous years have seen chocolate-covered bacon, bacon cupcakes, jalapeño-wrapped bacon and much more), they can also enjoy live entertainment and learn about Iowa’s pork industry via ISU student organizations, vendors within the industry and the Bacon Expo Education Committee.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of those who made the 2018 Iowa State Bacon Expo a success! The event would not have been possible without our record number of student organizers, vendors and sponsors. Special thanks to __ for sponsoring the largest student-run bacon expo in the country. We hope each and every one of you consumed generous amounts of bacon and we look forward to seeing you next year!
