Setup – Boots, Brews & Bacon Back in 2018

Unfortunately the festival has been cancelled this year 2017. Both NFMAF & BB&B will return next year June 2018 bigger & better. The festival founder Rick Crogan has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Syndrome & a Pituitary Issue his doctors have insisted that he rest and follow the regime that has been set up for him during the primary stages of both diseases. We hope everyone understands how disappointed Rick & the Team are for this news but Rick has said that the 2018 festivals will be bigger and better with great Music ,Art & Food so please check back with us throughout the year for updates on both Rick and the Festivals. Porch Fest 2017 is still going on July 29th 2017 so check our FB page for details.
