1 Smithfield VA Events Bacon Bourbon and Music Fest


Smithfield VA Events regrets to announce that due to the projections regarding the remnants of Hurricane Ian the annual Bacon Bourbon Music Fest scheduled for Saturday, October 1st, 2022 is cancelled. With the anticipated storm arrival on Friday, and out of concern for the safety of our volunteers, attendees and vendors, the Town of Smithfield has closed the venue site and requested that we mitigate the potential for projectile hazards by clearing the site of tents. This combined with the reallocation of the Towns Emergency Services to manage the impacts of this type of storm and to support the Governors State of Emergency that has been issued prevents us from moving forward to hold the festival.

Smithfield VA Events is truly disappointed to make this announcement. We will be working with our cancellation insurance company to deliver any potential refunds possible within the terms dictated by our policy. This will take some time to navigate, so please be kind and patient with us It is our intention to be able to offer refunds if our claim is approved. We are currently focused on the priority of clearing the site and notifying all involved. We will post future updates and information on our website,
