We’ve got a lot cooking with this year’s Bacon Expo.

The Iowa State Bacon Expo is an event dedicated to expanding the horizons of bacon lovers and educating the public about bacon. The Iowa State Bacon Expo is the only student-powered bacon oriented event of its kind in the United States. As an event born from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University, the Bacon Expo looks to educate the minds and fill the bellies of its participants with sweet, sweet delicious bacon!
