Bacon Festival Canceled

It’s with a heavy heart (though maybe not as heavy if I had eaten all that bacon) that I announce that the 7th annual Bacon Festival has been canceled.

The festival was originally slated to be held at the 17th St Farmers Market area. There were some disagreements of the management of that space by Enrichmond and the city, which holds the Bacon Festival, and the city took over management of the space from Enrichmond. As a result, Enrichmond has canceled the celebration.

Does anyone realize Dominion has built one of the largest buildings in Richmond in less time that the framers market remodel? Do we know why it’s still not completed and what’s the schedule? Who is in charge?

The City of Richmond was responsible for all aspects of construction of the farmers market. Enrichmond is not to blame for this, as they had no say in the project, timelines, or construction. The City simply outsourced the programming of the market events to Enrichmond. The failure of the completion of construction needs to fall back on the City, and outlines yet another example of how they poorly manage projects that are outsourced and are inept at meeting deadlines.

I am disappointed that an actual building was not built in the spot as originally planned years ago, replicating the original Farmer’s Market which stood there. Instead, we got a useless slab of nothing that is not even completed because they ran out of money.
