The annual Baconfest in Des Moines has become so popular that now an Iowa State University student is organizing one for Ames.
ISU junior Jake Swanson is planning Baconfest in October with the help of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Swanson was the Iowa Pork Producers Association’s Pork Ambassador last year.
The event will be held on campus, but an exact date has not yet been announced.
It will be free to attend and food will be for sale.
