Hog Heaven

Bacon & Barrels is your new favorite festival


You know that recurring dream you’ve been having?
That one where you’re surrounded by piles of succulent bacon, sipping premium scotch, and generally living a life of gluttonous luxury?
Yeah, it’s about to come true.
Tickets are on sale now for San Diego’s ultimate porcine celebration, the Bacon & Barrels Festival. And it's about time you wake up and get yours.
Called the Coachella of Bacon (by us), this outdoor pork party puts bacon-filled delicacies and artisan bourbons, beers, and wines on the main stage.
Like a hipster surrounded by obscure indie bands, you’ll wander giddy and wide-eyed amongst 140 booths offering local chefs’ most imaginative bacon recipes, and the craft barrel beverages that pair best with their creations.
As with any festival, life is better with a VIP ticket. Here, it’ll get you a spot at the dinner table for Top Chef alum Brooke Williamson’s all-bacon feast with drink pairings by Stone Brewing. Plus, early entrance into the park on the big day.
After a full day of tasting and drinking, there’s a good chance you fall into a sweet bacon coma by nightfall.

But at least you’ll have delicious fodder for your next dream.
