High Hopes Foundation is excited to announce that the 8th annual Bacon & Beer Festival will return to Merrimack, NH on June 1, 2024! For 41 years, High Hopes Foundation has provided life-enhancing experiences and medical equipment to New Hampshire’s terminally and chronically ill children. Bacon & Beer is our primary fundraiser, celebrating greasy, fatty, savory bacon alongside the endless possibilities of well-crafted brews.

This year we are on track for our biggest event yet: Largest sampling event in New Hampshire with 200 samples of beer, bacon and BBQ! We hope you will join us!

Great brews, awesome bacon dishes and live music from The Slakas (Nashua – classic / modern rock) will make for a perfect day of fun! We all need a little hope for the future, so thank you for your continued support of High Hopes Foundation and helping us make the dreams of New Hampshire children come alive!

By volunteering, you not only support the High Hopes Foundation, you will be helping us to earn a donation to sustain our own organization (NHGSA)!

** While we, as Granite State Ambassadors, can’t actually ‘attend’ the event as a ticket holder would, we CAN listen in to some great music and enjoy the festival atmosphere.  We cannot  sample bacon to be sure the guests have enough, but we will be able to purchase food. NEW: You will be given a special tasting glass (do not take the event one) and you can sample a couple beers. 

GSA Uniforms: required. GSA forest green shirt with khaki pants, shorts, capris or skirts. Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray recommended.

Perks: You will be able to enter the event to order food.  However, you will not be able to participate in the bacon samples. See Kelly to get your special tasting glass to do a little sampling. Be sure you are not impaired in any way on duty and bring your gum/mints.
