Just the facts. Nothing but the facts.

Where do I park?

There is plenty of parking at Bacon Bash Texas.  When you arrive at the event, look for signs that will direct you to church parking lots, side streets, pastures, and other designated event parking areas.

Do we eat and drink for free?

Yes!!  All the bacon you can stand is included in your ticket price!  No tokens or coupons needed. Attendees are invited to sample as many of our bacon cook off entries as they can eat.  Beer, bloody marys, and mixed drinks are also free!

Is this a fundraiser?

It is!  Bacon Bash Texas is a nonprofit organization that raises money for children with Type 1 Diabetes and Niki Warms the Cold.  This event is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Donations, live auction and card game present opportunities for everyone to get involved!

I need a place to stay. Are there any local accommodations?

What's this I hear? I will be entered into a raffle if I donate a coat or blanket on the day of the event?

You betcha! In an attempt to help out as many folks as possible, we’re encouraging ticket holders to bring blankets, coats, or new socks to donate to Niki Warms The Cold. By doing so, you will be entered into a raffle with a chance to win a great prize!

I don't drink. Now what?!?

We will have water and sodas available to wash down all that scrumptious meat candy.

Where's the Horny Toad & Cranfills Gap anyway?

Well… it’s out in the middle of nowhere, of course! But don’t let that deter you. The Horny Toad’s the next Luckenbach, folks. This is the ultimate of seriously sweet hole in the walls.

For real, though. Will there be anything available to eat other than bacon?

Well, there will be a variety of other ingredients used by the 50 teams competing in the cook off. You’ll be sampling those goodies! In addition, you’ll get to sample various pork butts from our pork butt competition. Aside from that, yes, the Horny Toad is a bar AND grill serving up some pretty awesome food.

Where can I get transportation?
