CORONA — What's more amazin' than baseball? 

The Bacon and Beer Classic is set to land at Citi Field on July 26 with craft beer, bacon-inspired snacks along with instructional demos to learn more about the beloved treats.

Local chefs from more than 80 restaurants will cook their own food using high-quality bacon provided by festival organizers.

“This certainly won’t be a run-of-the-mill experience for guests," said Kate Levenstien, founder of the classic, which is produced by Cannonball Productions. They've brought the festival to stadiums around the country, including Seattle.

Beers will be provided by local breweries, including Queens Brewery, The Bronx Brewery and Great South Bay from Long Island. 

Guests can also learn a bit with cooking demonstrations and beer schools at the stadium, and there will be interactive games and live music.

Tickets for the festival, which will be held in morning and evening sessions, are $59. VIP tickets, which ensure an additional hour of pork-filled treats, cost $129. For more information, visit the website.
