There are a lot of summer festivals here in the Hudson Valley, and one of the most popular festivals is coming up on July 15. Beer, Bourbon and Bacon is back, and this year we are having it at Barton Orchards, 63 Apple Tree lane in Poughquag from 2 - 6 pm, 1 - 6 pm for those with VIP tickets.

I have been to the last couple of Beer, Bourbon, and Bacon festivals, and they are a blast. Not to mention delicious. This year you can get the VIP Experience that includes so much I can't even begin to list it here, but get your tickets now because they will not be available the day of the event.

You can also get a general admission ticket with a bacon passport which allows you to sample some great bacon in addition to beer and bourbon samples, or the general admission ticket which includes beer and bourbon samples. There will be tons of vendors and live music all day.

This is one summer event that you don't want to miss. To purchace tickets and for more information, visit beerbourbonbacon.com. See you there!
