  • Description

    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 28th 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, sizzlin' bacon, and more!

    HOGGY HUGS TO OUR AMAZING SPONSORS: MailChimp, Caren West PR, and Sierra Nevada

    The Greasy Details:

    This year's GAMES and FUN include: Human Foosball, Hobo Wine Tasting, Flip Cup Tournament, and Naughty Face Painting, plus lots of other fun!

    This year's ENTERTAINMENT includes: The Dirt Poets, Thimblerig Circus, Blast Off Burlesque and a Not So Silent Auction with LIVE Honkytonk Karaoke!

    Other awesome folks providing SPECIAL TASTINGS and ACTIVITIES: There will be a Scavenger Hunt throughout the day. We will also have our first ever Bacon Smackdown, a competition featuring local restaurants (like Bone Lick and the Corner Tavern) wherein they bring their best bacon and YOU decide the winner!

    This year's SILENT AUCTION is online at 501 Auctions
    In order to bid, you must register with a credit/debit card. The highest bidder at 5pm will be charged automatically and that person wins the item. This means that bids are binding. Bidders are notified when they have been outbid via text message - the same for when they win.

    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! And beer will be flowing heavily, so please take a safe ride option. Here are some of your main options:

    1. Take Uber. It's like a taxi, but WAY better.Use the code OINK2015 and first time users will get a first free ride up to $25. (Why not carpool and throw a first time Uber user in there!)
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Need handicapped parking? We'll have spaces reserved for you on Angier right next to the venue.
