What is Baconfest?

This unique bacon-themed evening features taste-testing and voting on the best bacon dishes from area restaurants, grocery stores, BBQ pits, and caterers. Local chefs from the finest local restaurants prepare and serve samples starring bacon and compete for best appetizer, best main dish, and best dessert. 

All proceeds from the event go to Area Residential Care and support their mission of empowering people with intellectual disabilities to achieve their highest quality of life.
