Baconfest is back for its 12th year at Dad’s Garage. It takes place on Saturday, March 31. This festival has three of the essential B’s for a successful even: Beer, Band and of course, Bacon.
Festivities start at 1pm on Saturday, March 31th and go full boar until 6pm that evening with four awesome local bands, hilarious booths (like Hobo Wine Tasting and Dr. Boobies) manned by the best improvisers in the city, and troughs upon troughs of cold beer and sizzlin’ bacon. There will also be all sorts of awesome entertainment (like eating contests and improv games) as well as a silent auction, and even a slow smoked whole hog for those of you that want to put in a little extra to really pig out.
They sold out last year, and figured they’d give everyone a shot to get in on the hot pork-on-pork action early this year. Don’t get stuck on the wrong side of the pen this year!
Portioned Porking ($25 online): For the average Joe that’s new to the bacon guzzling world. Admission to the festival, 5 game tickets, and three cups full of beer, bacon or both.
Bottomless Bacon ($45 online): For the professional piggy that really knows how to shovel it in. Admission to the festival, unlimited game playing, and unlimited beer and bacon.
Still not enough swine? Go Whole Hog! Literally! For $40 more, upgrade from ‘Bottomless Bacon’ and ham it up with some serious style. A whole pig roasted to perfection by P’cheen, several kegs of delicious high gravity beer, and some exotically flavored bacon that only the ‘Whole Hoggers’ have access to.
