BaconFest Chicago 2017

Baconfest Chicago is a nationally renowned, locally beloved festival dedicated to America’s favorite cured meat: bacon!

At Baconfest, Chicago’s best chefs concoct and serve brilliant bacon dishes to thousands of passionate bacon lovers.

 Liquor sponsors provide cocktails, beer and wine designed to complement a bacon meal. 

Bacontrepreneurs and bacon-friendly brands exhibit their wares and connect with the bacon community. 

A panel of judges bestows the Golden Rasher awards on chefs and guests for achievement in the bacon arts. 

It is a raucous, rockin’  and fairly salty good time for everybody involved.
