Iowa State University to sell bacon expo tickets

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State University will soon begin selling tickets for its first exposition celebrating all things bacon.

Tickets go on sale Friday for the school’s first-ever Bacon Expo, which is scheduled for Oct. 19 in the Scheman Building Courtyard at the Iowa State Center. Officials say 1,200 tickets will be sold at $8 each.

Students are organizing the event, which will offer visitors hundreds of pounds of bacon samples as well as a bacon-eating contest. The expo is aimed at promoting the school’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, as well as the impact of pork production in the state.

Tickets can be purchased online.
