About Baconfest:

Baconfest Chicago holds its ninth tasting event on March 31 and April 1, 2017 at the UIC Forum (725 West Roosevelt). Ticketholders gain access to a bacon-wonderland where the city’s best chefs hand out amazing creative bacon snacks. Luxury brands, artisan bacon-makers, and bacontrepreneurs display, sample, and sell a multitude of bacon products. The best mixologists and brewers hand out bacon-inspired cocktails, beer and wine. To celebrate special achievement in the bacon arts, Baconfest gives out Golden Rasher Awards (the Oscars of the bacon world). Best of all, Baconfest is good for America. In addition to hosting a food drive and raffle at the event, Baconfest Chicago donates a portion of proceeds from ticket sales to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.  Since 2009, Baconfest’s support has resulted in more than $360,000 for Chicago’s food bank, which translates into more than 1,100,000 meals for hungry people in the area.
