After careful deliberation and discussion with the Bacon and Brew Planning Committee and other partners and sponsors, the United Way of Coastal Carolina Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 6th annual Bacon and Brew Festival for 2020.

The health and safety of our festival attendees, vendors, sponsors and volunteers is always our top priority. While disappointed, we look forward to 2021 when we hope to be able to enjoy some bacon, brews, and great live music, while supporting the non-profit agencies and programs funded by United Way.  We fund agencies that provide direct services to those in need in our communities, including issues with domestic violence, food insecurity, addiction, adult literacy, disaster recovery, homelessness, child care, and health care. 

All proceeds from Bacon and Brew benefit United Way of Coastal Carolina and the programs that are funded by UWCC to improve the lives of individuals and families in Carteret, Craven, Jones and Pamlico Counties.
