General admission tickets for Baconfest 2014 (April 25 & 26) will go on sale Monday, Feb 24 at noon 12:00pm CT.

In the past, tickets have sold out in minutes, so put a reminder in your phone, block out your schedule at work and be quick on the draw! General admission tickets cost $100 (plus fees) and can be purchased online.  

The three sessions are:

  • Friday Dinner on April 25 – General Admission from 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM
  • Saturday Lunch on April 26 – General Admission from 12:30 PM – 3:00 PM
  • Saturday Dinner on April 26 – General Admission from 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM


To help you decide which session to attend, the organizers have released a breakdown of which restaurants will be participating in each session (click here). Some of the most creative chefs from across the city are participating in this year’s event and you can’t go wrong with any of the sessions.

This year I’m planning to be a bit darling by choosing the session that I think has the most number of chefs who don’t normally work with bacon. Right now I’m leaning towards the Saturday lunch session because I’d like to see what Jason Im of Jellyfish does and I’m excited by Mark Bernard of WOW BAO. As a WOW BAO addict, this might be a chance to get my hands on a bacon bao!

In addition to the chefs’ creations, Whole Foods Market will be sampling bacon, Stumptown Coffee Roasters will serve fresh cups of coffee, Wirtz Beverage will provide cocktails and Revolution Brewing Company will provide the beer.
