Storyline

State of Bacon tells the kinda real but mostly fake tale of an oddball group of characters leading up to the annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. Bacon-enthusiasts, Governor Branstad, a bacon queen, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, members of PETA, and an envoy of Icelanders are not excluded from this bacon party and during the course of the film become intertwined with the organizers of the festival to show that bacon diplomacy is not dead.

A Seriously Witty & Mouth-watering Mocumentary
22 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whether you're familiar with Iowa's Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival or not, "State of Bacon" gives a hilarious, inside look at the planning and execution of one of the most delicious festivals in the history of food festivals.

I'll be honest - going into this movie I wasn't sure what to expect. I mean, it was obvious bacon would play a prominent role (and quite frankly, that was enough to get me to the theater), but I was blown away by the hilarity that ensued. The Bacon Board (who are the real life creators of Bacon Fest and are pretty much the stars of the film)made a lasting impression. You can tell they are a big group of goof balls, with senses of jocularity that might be slightly more mature than frat-humor. Other high-lights of the film include Hacksaw Jim Dugan scolding animal activists, some drunken campers, and a couple of snarky grade schoolers with a passion for pork.

Overall, it just works - especially if you're able to enjoy a cold brew and some hot bacon while viewing.
