NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – The irresistible smell and taste of bacon, combined with mouthwatering BBQ, great music and loads of family fun, will help make Seneca Square in front of Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino the place to be during the first weekend of August.

Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino and Balabans, LLC are gearing up what promises to be Western New York’s tastiest community event. The inaugural Boots, Brews, & Bacon Festival will take place in Seneca Square on Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st. Free to the public, the Boots Brews, & Bacon Festival is a celebration of Country and Southern Rock partnered with great food, retail vendors, a BBQ contest, and games for children and families, among other activities and attractions.

“The Boots, Brews & Bacon Festival will be the best fall barbecue our community will attend all year,” said Audrey Oswell, chief operating officer, Seneca Gaming Corporation. For starters, the festival will feature bacon – and lots of it. IN fact, every food station taking part in the festival must have a bacon item on their menu, with a prize going to the item voted the festival’s Best Bacon Dish. In addition, food vendors can choose to participate in the festival’s BBQ contest, with prizes available in the following categories: Best BBQ Sauce, Best BBQ Chicken (sandwich or whole), Best Pulled Pork, Best Ribs or Brisket, and Fan Favorite. Winners will be announced at 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 1st. Seneca Niagara partnered with Balabans and founder Rick Crogan on the recent Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival, which was held in Seneca Square in June.

To go along with the delicious food, there will be plenty of cold beer available in the event’s beer tent, along with hot performances by some of the most talented regional Country, Rock-A- Billy, Blues, and Southern Rock band in the region. Artists, musicians, vendors and sponsors interested in participating in the inaugural Boots, Brews, & Bacon Festival can find more information online at or by contacting festival organizers at (716) 534-9960 or via email at
