Kevin Bacon will regrettably miss Baconfest

Posted: Updated:

Kevin Bacon is sending his best to Brattleboro, but he won’t be attending Baconfest.

WCAX told you last week how the community was pulling out all the stops to convince the Hollywood actor to come to town for the festival celebrating all things bacon. A so-called "flat Bacon" made its way around the community and even posed with Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy hoping to get the actor's attention on social media. Well, Monday the Footloose hero tweeted back to Brattleboro.

"Hey it's Kevin Bacon sending my regrets to the good people of Brattleboro, Vermont. I wish I could be there this weekend. I am in Vancouver shooting a film. I really appreciate all the support and the hilarious effort by Brattleboro and the state of Vermont has made to try to get me there. I am a big fan of Vermont. I got two sisters that live in that great state. And unfortunately, I gotta be working. So, have a great time and enjoy the bacon," said Bacon.

Baconfest is this Saturday at the Guilford Fairgrounds. It's 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and free to the public.
