Bacon Fest Sacramento has arrived! All you bacon lovers out there can rejoice and get your bacon fix. Bacon Fest is here from January 20 – 27 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.
All events are not-for-profit and all the funds raised go to Sacramento chefs, restaurateurs, and the Center For Land Based Learning nonprofit.
