Squeeeeeeeaaaaalllll! BaconFest is BACK, lil' piggies - and this year it'll be held at The Masquerade Music Park so it'll be bigger and better than ever. No, seriously - we're cooking up over 2,250 lbs. of bacon this year!!
New to BaconFest? This outdoor festival (21 and up!) is an unbridled bash filled to the brim with the 3 B's: BEER. BANDS. BACON. It's also a fundraiser for Dad's Garage (yes, we're a non-profit), so even if you're not in it to capture the world record for swallowing the most swine, you can rest assured that your cash is still going to a good cause.
We'll grease up the day at 1pm on Saturday, March 29th and go full boar until 6pm that evening with awesome local bands, hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city, troughs upon troughs of cold beer brought to you by PBR, sizzlin' bacon donated by The Vortex (and cooked by Thumbs Up), and more!
HOGGY HUGS TO OUR AMAZING SPONSORS: MailChimp, Caren West PR, The Vortex Bar & Grill, Thumbs Up Diner, Kanga, and Uber!

We're in a new location this year - The Masquerade Music Park (at The Masquerade) which is located at 695 North Ave., Atlanta, GA 30308.
Parking is limited! While we have rented a parking lot and a shuttle service for you nearby that will be free of charge, the beer will be flowing heavily, so please take a safe ride option. Here are some of your main options:
- Take Uber. It's like a taxi, but WAY better. Plus - if you're a first time user, they're offering up to $40 off your first ride if you use them for BaconFest. Use code "Oink2014" to redeem.
- Use the Beltline. The Eastside Trail and Historic Old 4th Ward park butt (hehe) right up to the Masquerade. You could take a leisurely stroll through the park or ride your bike. We'll even have a place for you to lock up your wheels when you arrive.
- Park at The Atlanta Medical Center (located at 303 Parkway Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30312) and take the shuttle we rented for ya! It's about a mile away from the event. Shuttles start at 12:30p.m. It is free for BaconFest attendees, but space is limited.
- Park on the street. There is some street parking available in nearby neighborhoods and at the park if you're willing to walk. However, DO NOT PARK AT KROGER. They will boot/tow your car.
- Need handicapped parking? We'll have spaces reserved for you on Angier right next to the venue.
