High Hopes Foundation is excited to announce that the 7th annual Bacon & Beer Festival will return to Merrimack, NH on June 3, 2023! For 40 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: 60+ craft brewers (150+ brew options), 25 bacon samples, and the Pulled Pork People’s Choice Contest returns with 25+ pulled pork samplers. We hope you will join us!

Great brews, awesome bacon dishes and live music 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 to drink beer, we CAN listen in to some great music and enjoy the festival atmosphere.  We may be able to sample some bacon, and we will be able to purchase food.

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 beer samples.
