WATCH: Celebrity chef puts town on TV ahead of BaconFest

A POPULAR TV program has captured a preview of what locals and guests can expect from the two-day celebration of pork at BaconFest 2019 as the countdown enters the final weeks.

Filmed in July, the television crew from Channel Seven's The Great Day Out followed celebrity chef Alastair Mcleod around as he tasted his way through the region.

Visiting well-known establishments such as Glendon Street Cafe, the Kingaroy TAFE campus and a section of the South Burnett Rail Trail, the program shone a light on the festival dedicated entirely to bacon.

This year BaconFest will be held in Kingaroy from Friday, August 23 until Sunday, August 25.
