The Bacon & Bourbon Festival shines a loving light on our most flavorful food-Bacon, and the quintessential American liquor, Bourbon.
We return with an expanded menu of bacon and pork related dished from the sublime (Forever Roasted Bourbon BBQ Pork & Bacon Sandwich) to the insane (Bacon Ice Cream Sundae, Bourbon and Caramel Sauce anyone?). Menu items developed by local chefs exploring the boundaries of New American Cuisine and the Farm to Table movement to good old fashioned comfort foods, just like Mom used to make!
Another enhancement to this year’s version of the Bacon & Bourbon Fest, are the limited number of exhibitors. By invitation only, we will feature a very small number of specialty exhibitors and plenty of tables and chairs where you can mingle with friends and sip bourbon and eat fabulous bacon inspired dishes.
We’ll have plenty of backyard games to play; corn hole, jenga, checkers and the now famous pig race game!
Completing the palate pleasing properties of bacon, we have an eclectic selection of bourbon and whiskeys. The distiller’s art and patient techniques are shared in a series of seminars and tastings. All intended to enhance your knowledge and pleasure of bourbon, rye and whiskey. We may throw an Irish-made whiskey into the mix for historical purposes.
Join us on March 23 – 25, 2018 for a culinary journey with a pig and a barrel in beautiful at the beautiful Wellington Amphitheater. We’ve cleared it with your doctor; your cardiologist and your mother so come and play at the Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Festival.
