Celebrate an American — and Cincinnati — food icon on the Ohio riverfront: bacon. There will be Moerlein beer flights and food pairings and a Cincinnati beer trivia contest, where the winner will receive two passes to any Brewery District tour.

The live music lineup includes Trailer Park Floosies, Marsha Brady, Moment 44, Final Order and more.

With numerous eateries supplying bacon-centric fare from bacon-wrapped meatballs and pork belly mac and cheese to bacon cream puffs and bacon cannoli, this event knows its way to a person’s heart — and arteries. There will also be bourbon tastings, bourbon creations from area  mixologists and craft beer.

5-11 p.m. Thursday-Friday; noon-11 p.m. Saturday; noon-9 p.m. Sunday (July 11-14). Free admission. Festival Park, Riverboat Row, Newport, cincinnatifestivalsandevents.com
