Calling all bacon lovers! Baconfest is your paradise! Our city’s best chefs concoct and serve bacon dishes for you to enjoy along with cocktails, beer and wine from liquor sponsors to compliment a bacon meal. Bacontrepreneurs and bacon-friendly brands will also be on site showing off their wares and connecting with the community. There’s even a judging portion to crown chefs and guests in the bacon arts!

Fun fact: a portion of the proceeds benefits the Greater Chicago Food Depository!

Three Sessions

Baconfest will be divided into three exhibition sessions:

  • Friday Dinner Shift
