The creators of this glorious experience have just announced the date and venue for Baconfest 2012: Saturday April 14th at the UIC Forum. It's six months away, and I'm already excited! Baconfest!!!
Believe it or not 2012 will be the fourth year for this annual bacon orgy, and it doesn't show any signs of losing popularity. If you want tickets make sure to sign up for the Baconfest mailing list. A limited number of early bird VIP tickets will be released in December, and email subscribers will be notified of the date and time of the sale. General admission tickets will go on sale in February.
I went to Baconfest last year, and to get tickets I sat at my computer and refreshed the screen every two seconds until the exact moment tickets when on sale. By the time I had completed my order, tickets were already gone!
I do have to tell you though that it was everything I dreamed it to be. Bacon as far as the eye could see in every imaginable form. My favorite item was bacon cotton candy. Sound gross? That's because you haven't tried it! Once you've gone to Baconfest you'll think nothing about bacon ice cream or trying on bacon perfume.
