Q: What is Baconfest?
Baconfest is a culinary festival dedicated to Bacon. A collection of Chicago’s greatest chefs come up with amazing bacon concoctions to serve to our guests. A selection of awesome liquor sponsors provide drinks that either feature bacon as a main ingredient or serve as a perfect bacon accompaniment. Bacon vendors give out samples of their bacon products and sell their wares in the Vendor Expo. We donate a portion of the proceeds to the Greater Chicago Food Depository and run a food-drive at the event.
