I didn’t go to the inaugural Maryland Bacon Festival at Rash Field in the Inner Harbor, but I know a universal panning when I see one. Disappointed festival-goers took to Facebook to complain about lines with two-hour waits, overflowing trash cans, too few bathrooms, a lack of bacon (ouch!), and no refunds for unusable food tickets.
Notwithstanding that laundry list of grievances, the organizers’ response claimed that “a lot went right with” the Bacon Festival and that “thousands of people ate thousands of bacon themed food items.” I guess none of those thousands of people are very active on social media.
The statement implies that refunds are out of the question, promising only that “when we produce another Bacon Festival, be it here or elsewhere, every shortcoming of Saturday’s event will be addressed, and we will not make the same mistakes twice.”
Hopefully, neither will this year’s attendees.
