Less Tickets. Last year this event SOLD OUT. This year, in order to make the event more pleasant we’ve reduced tickets by over 15%. What this means is that there are less tickets that will be available. We are sorry that some people will be left out – but it will be better for the event overall and it won’t be so cramped.
More Bacon. We’ve increased our samples from all the participating restaurants.
We’ve doubled the Griddled Bacon Stations
The VIP Beer and Bacon Session will host more specialty beers and drinks than last year.
