This year the Bacon Fest was added to the Red River Barbecue Battle which begins Friday with a steak and salsa contest.
Community Leaders say Bacon Fest celebrates the impact Wright Brand has had in Vernon.
Judging begins shortly after 1 Saturday and the public can vote for people's choice by purchasing votes at 4 for a dollar.
The barbecue battle Saturday will consist of brisket, ribs, chicken and beans.
