News from Britain at Caren West PR:

Masquerade Music Park to Host Celebration of Beer, Bacon, Bands, on Saturday, March 28, 2015
All Proceeds Benefiting Dad’s Garage Theatre Company

Atlanta’s outrageously savory and sometimes salacious annual event, BaconFest will return to Masquerade Music Park on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. Presented by MailChimp and sponsored by Sierra Nevada and Delta, BaconFest is the year’s largest fundraiser for Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, who recently completed a successful capital campaign and purchased its new forever home in the Old Fourth Ward. Taking over the entire Masquerade venue, BaconFesters can expect a triple helping of everything during the 15th annual event. That means more bacon, more beer, more music, more booths, more entertainment, an expansive and fun silent auction with karaoke and, as always… more shenanigans. Selling out every year, all proceeds benefit Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, a nonprofit theater that engages, cultivates and inspires artists and audiences alike by producing innovative, scripted and improvised works that are recognized locally, nationally and internationally for being undeniably awesome.

Founded in 1992, the kitschy festival has become a fixture in the Atlanta community by combining kegs of cold beer and troughs of sizzlin’ bacon with live performances by favorite local bands; hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city; and unforgettable entertainment like hobo wine tasting, naughty face painting, a scavenger hunt, and more. Also returning to BaconFest this year is the Whole Hog VIP ticket option that gives festival goers exclusive access to a whole pig, roasted once more by the critically acclaimed BBQ masters at Bone Lick BBQ and delicious specialty Sierra Nevada brews. New this year will be the first ever Bacon Smack Down, where local restaurants will compete for festival goers votes for the the best bacon dishes of BaconFest 2015. Details about this year’s bands, games and partners to be announced in the coming weeks.

Dad’s Garage is offering three early bird ticket options for the 15th annual BaconFest:

Portioned Porking ($25 online): Admission to the festival, 5 game tickets, and three cups full of Miller Lite beer, bacon or both.

Bottomless Bacon ($45 online): Admission to the festival, unlimited game playing, and unlimited Sierra Nevada beer and bacon.

Whole Hog! Still not enough swine? For $40 more, attendees can upgrade from ‘Bottomless Bacon’ and ham it up with some serious style by getting access to whole pig roasted to perfection by Bone Lick BBQ, several kegs of specialty Sierra Nevada beers, and some exclusive treats. Whole Hoggers also get a special BaconFest 2015 t-shirt!

Depending upon availability, tickets can be purchased at the door. Pricing is subject to increase. BaconFest will held at the Masquerade Music Park in Poncey-Highlands at 695 North Avenue NE. The event will be held no matter rain or shine for ages 21 and up. Attendees are encouraged to take safe-ride option.
