Come celebrate two well-appreciated Southern traditions: hearty food & distilled spirits!
We'll be bringing together a variety of Memphis’ best restaurants and an array of distilled spirits brands as we savor a night of bacon, BBQ, and all the great things that come from old oak barrels - at our fourth annual The Memphis Flyer's Bacon & Bourbon Festival, presented by Orion FCU!
Your ticket price includes 15 bourbon tastings, tasty pork dishes from a variety of local restaurants, great local music from Graber Gryass and fun party activities, and best of all -- Bacon & Bourbon benefits the Memphis Farmers Market, so every sip counts!
And this year we're hosting Memphis Bacon & Bourbon Festival at Beale St. Landing in downtown Memphis on Riverside Drive, so we'll watch a beautiful Mississippi River sunset while we enjoy the evening.
