baconfestDefying bulldozers, hardhats and cement trucks, the wildly popular BaconFest will rise from the dirt mountain of its former home and descend upon the Masquerade Music Park on March 29 from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Sponsored by MailChimp, BaconFest will again benefiting Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, who recently found itself without a permanent home of its own and is currently producing shows at neighboring 7 Stages Theatre in Little Five Points, until they find their forever home.

Utilizing the extra space that Masquerade affords the event, BaconFesters can expect a triple helping of everything during the 14th annual event. That means more bacon, more beer, more music, more booths, more entertainment, an expansive silent auction and, as always… more schenanigans.

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.

Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now at for ages 21 and up.
