Bacon Fest Sacramento (BFS) is just around the corner! All you bacon lovers out there can rejoice and get your bacon fix. Bacon Fest is here from January 19 – 25 and is all about pork from pigs who lived healthy, happy lives at farms that value ethical and sustainable food production.
All the bacon and pork dishes enjoyed at BFS events are house-made by Sacramento chefs that truly care about quality natural foods.
The inaugural BFS went down in January 2012 and other events such as The BLT Bike Crawl and Bacon Fest vs. Sacramento Beer Week soon followed.
Bacon Fest Opening Night at Hook & Ladder

Bacon Fest is taking over Hook & Ladder for an evening of pigging out! Chef Brian Mizner and staff will be preparing bacon-focused specials all night. Stop in for small plates and a drink after work, or sit down and grab a table to enjoy bacon pizzas and dishes.
Will Chef Vinny make more BLT ravioli? Will co-owner Kimio whip up some bacon fried rice? Join us and find out! (Last year’s menu amazed, so don’t miss out!)
Many thanks to our farm sponsors Llano Seco for providing smoked pork shanks and beans. Additional thanks to Long Ranch farms, which has raised eight hogs for this year’s Bacon Week.
DRINKS: Bar manager Chris Tucker will have a nice menu of fun cocktails that pair well with pork.
