Vendors will sell bacon menu items between $2 and $16. This year, the festival will be featuring Piggy Bucks, thanks to TFCU. Piggy Bucks are coins that will be used in order to purchase anything within the festival grounds, the coins will be valued at $2 each, and they must be used to purchase at the vendor booths -- no cash will be accepted at the vendor booths. Look for the TFCU Piggy Bank booths throughout the festival, these are where Piggy Bucks can be purchased.
