Dad’s Garage Baconfest! Beer, Bands, Bacon

Saturday, March 31st @ 1pm

Portioned Porking — $25 online, $35 phone/door
Bottomless Bacon — $45 online, $55 phone/door
Whole Hog — $85 online, $95 phone/door


This outdoor festival is an unbridled bash filled to the brim with the 3 B’s: BEER. BANDS. BACON.

It’s also a fundraiser for Dad’s Garage (yes, we’re a non-profit), so even if you’re not in it to capture the world record for swallowing the most swine, you can rest assured that you’re cash is still going to a good cause.

We’ll grease up the day at 1pm on Saturday, March 31st and go full boar until 6pm that evening with four awesome local bands, hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city, and troughs upon troughs of cold beer and sizzlin’ bacon. We’ll also have all sorts of awesome entertainment (like a drunken spelling bee, the crowning of bacon king and queen, and more) as well as a succulent silent auction, and even a slow smoked whole hog for those of you that want to put in a little extra to really pig out.


Portioned Porking ($25 online, $35 phone/door): For the average Joe that’s new to the bacon guzzling world. This pass gets you admission to the festival, 5 carnival game tickets, and 3 cups full of food/booze (it’s your choice whether you fill your 3 cups with beer, bacon, or both).

(Yes, you can purchase more beer and bacon at the festival).

Bottomless Bacon ($45 online, $55 phone/door): For the professional piggy that really knows how to shovel it in. This pass gets you admission to the festival, unlimited game playing, and all the beer and bacon you can stuff in your stomach. **Please note, like anywhere else in the world, we expect you drink responsibly. Please don’t be a jerk and overdo it.

Whole Hog! Literally. ($85 online, $95 phone/door) We’re wheeling in a whole pig roasted to perfection by P’cheen (trust us, those boys know their BBQ), several kegs of specialty beer, AND, you even get your very own BaconFest 2012 tee-shirt. SQUEEEEEEEAL! Yep, this is on top of the unlimited beer, bacon, and games. There are a very limited number of these passes available, so snatch them up quick before somebody else gets their greasy little snout on them.



GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY. We sold out last year and had no tickets left at the door.

It’s a darn good idea to take MARTA or a taxi cab.

This event is RAIN or SHINE. Sorry, NO REFUNDS or EXCHANGES.

Thanks to our awesome pals at CWPR and The Vortex for riding the bacon train with us!
