There’s A Pork Roll Festival Happening In New Jersey And It’s As Amazing As It Sounds
Pork Roll, also known as Taylor Ham in the northern part of the state, is a New Jersey staple. We typically pair it with egg and cheese on a hard roll for breakfast (or lunch) but it goes well with almost anything. The Garden State’s very own spiced meat, it’s a magnificent treat, and it deserves to be celebrated. Lucky for us, New Jersey is home to TWO competing pork roll festivals, both taking place on the same day.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
