Atlanta’s outrageously savory and oft-salacious annual event, BaconFest, is set to return in 2018 to our home at 569 Ezzard Street, just off of Edgewood Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward. The 17th annual event takes place Saturday, March 31, 2018 and we urge bacon-lovers to keep that date open and their attention locked on Dad’s, as the innovative, comedic crew will be revealing juicy details in the coming weeks about the 2018 meaty extravaganza.
Founded in 1999, the kitschy festival has become a fixture in the Atlanta community by combining troughs upon troughs of cold beer; hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city; and unforgettable entertainment like a hobo wine tasting, naughty face painting, drunken spelling bee, a scavenger hunt, and more. Selling out every year, all proceeds benefit Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, a nonprofit theatre group that engages, cultivates and inspires artists and audiences alike by producing innovative, scripted and improvised works that are recognized locally, nationally and internationally for being undeniably awesome.
