NH Bacon & Beer Festival
The 8th annual NH Bacon & Beer Festival returns Saturday, June 1, 2024, to the Anheuser-Busch fields in Merrimack NH. The High Hopes Foundation celebrates 40 YEARS of providing life-enhancing experiences to New Hampshire's chronically and terminally ill children, so join us in making the dreams of New Hampshire children come alive! Bacon & Beer is our primary fundraiser, celebrating greasy, fatty, savory bacon alongside the endless possibilities of incredible craft brews. Over the past 9 years, this event has raised more than $720,000, helping hundreds of families throughout the state.
- New Hampshire's largest sampling fest with 60 craft brewers (150+ brew options), 20 bacon samplers and 25 BBQ samplers!
- The North Country Smokehouse Pulled Pork People's Choice Contest returns, featuring more than 25 BBQ teams offering pulled pork samples -- vote on your favorite!
- Visit a variety of dessert and merchandise vendors, so bring money to spend!
- On-site ticket prices increase from $15-25 per ticket, IF they are still available when gates open.
Great brews, awesome bacon and BBQ dishes, and live music will make for an incredible day of fun to celebrate 40 years of High Hopes Foundation's support of New Hampshire's kids!
