2017 saw downtown Gloversville play host to the inaugural Bacon Jam, a music and food festival held at Bleecker Square in and around the Farmers Market Pavilion in Gloversville.
The bacon-centric event welcomed over 3,500 people, hosted seven food vendors, four breweries and six community groups. Highlight of the day were the many musical acts and the City’s first-ever beer garden.
Bacon Jam’s second year will be bigger and better than before! Planned from September 29, 2018, the event will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will feature a larger beer garden and more food vendors. Bacon Jam’s reach goes beyond Gloversville, drawing guests from the surrounding region.
