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!
