Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Miami’s favorite outdoor destination, is hosting its first annual Bacon & BBQ Classic on Saturday, October 8, from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Guests will be able to indulge themselves in a variety of finger-licking good pitmasters and South Florida’s best BBQers. Visitors can enjoy flights of bourbon or beer to pair with their BBQ while rocking out to the live music band performing, Yacht Rock, and some tunes from the DJ. The kids are welcome to join in on the fun by participating in scavenger hunts, Gunny Sack races, watermelon eating contests, and much more. 

BBQ and bacon lovers can treat themselves to multiple options of food from vendors such as Bodega Taqueria with their mouth watering BBQ tacos, Pig Floyd’s juicy BBQ brisket and pulled pork, and top off with a dessert from Key West Sweets’ scrumptious Mini Bacon Cupcake. Meat N’ Bone, in collaboration with The Barrel, the signature product of ChefSmoke, will demonstrate the best of grilling, roasting, and smoking.

This event is perfect for the entire family, with different activities and tastings for everyone to enjoy. Here are the fun experiences that await you:

  • Live band & DJ music from Yacht Rock

  • Lawn Games and Watermelon Eating Contest

  • Delicious tastings from vendors such as La Traila, Pig Floyd, Bodega, Burda, and more.
