Kids are Invited to “Go Hog Wild” at the Colorado State Fair


PUEBLO, Colo. – Bacon is a delicious addition to any meal and kids are now invited to test their bacon-creativity in the “Go Hog Wild” contest at the Colorado State Fair.


Participants, 16 years old and younger, are invited to compete in this new state fair challenge.  They must create an original recipe (breakfast/brunch, lunch, dinner, appetizer, salad, soup, main dish, side dish, snack, dessert, beverages or other) with bacon as the main ingredient with a significant taste of bacon in the dish. Dressings and sauces are allowed. The dish can be paired with additional proteins and vegetables.


The kid’s cook-off is sponsored by Stubby’s Cinnamon Rolls, which is located in the Palace of Agriculture. Judging will be based on taste, creativity, appearance, ease of preparation, and general appeal. The entry fee is only $5 with the top three prizes totaling $250. 


The contest will be held on September 4, 2015; registration is now open with an entry deadline of September 2, 2015. For contest details, official rules, and a list of other special contests, contact the Colorado State Fair general entry office at 719-404-2080 or visit


The Colorado State Fair runs August 28 - September 7, 2015.  For more information,


The 2015 Colorado State Fair will mark the Fair's 143rd year as Colorado's premier celebration of agriculture.

In addition to showcasing Colorado agriculture, the annual event features one of the country’s largest traveling carnivals, artwork, crafts, food competitions, thrilling rodeo action, a wide variety of food and merchandise booths and a Fiesta Day honoring Colorado's ties to the Hispanic culture.
