A Door County delicacy brought hundreds to a popular festival at Martin Park on Saturday afternoon. The annual Side Pork Festival highlights side pork, thick-cut bacon that is not smoked and slow cooked over charcoal, while also offering live music, local vendors, and a kids zone that had an inflatable bounce house. Co-organizer, Ryan Hoffmann, explains why he thinks people like coming to the event.
Hoffmann adds that he doesn’t have exact figures yet but expects that this year’s festival had higher attendance and revenue. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to programs at the Door County Sheriff’s Department, such as the K-9 project.
