Chef Joey will be representing Community Tavern during the Saturday lunch session!
Baconfest is a fun-filled, walk-around tasting event featuring the most creative bacon dishes from the best chefs in Chicago.
"On the festival floor, the hottest chefs from the finest local restaurants prepare and serve small plates starring bacon. The best mixologists and brewers quench thirst with refreshing bacon-based and bacon-inspired cocktails and brews. Luxury brands, artisan bacon-makers, and bacontrepreneurs display, sample, and sell a multitude of local craft bacons and bacon-related products. Guests grab a Baconfest: Guide to Bacon playbill and walk around in a bacon-lover’s Nirvana. Best of all, Baconfest is good for America. We donate a portion of proceeds from ticket sales, host raffles and organize sponsor matching donations to local food charities. Since 2009, Baconfest has raised over $400,000 enabling partners like the Greater Chicago Food depository to distribute more than 1.2 million meals to hungry people in the area. Although we are not a 501 c3 non-profit, our charitable giving is central to our event and to our identity."
