Baconfest Florida 2013 Coming Saturday February 23rd

Bacon Fest Florida 2013

Well it had to happen. Saturday February 23rd, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is hosting BaconFest Florida 2013. While it’s the 1st BaconFest in South Florida, it’s occurred in New York and Chicago already. The event is hosted by Chef Todd Fischer from Discovery’s Destination America network show, ‘United States of Bacon’ and includes performances by the Bacon Brothers (yes Kevin Bacon and his brother) and the Dan Band (from the movies Old School & The Hangover).

The $25 ticket price will get you free food sampling from 20 different South Florida restos but does not include drinks. There’s also a Chef competition to watch for the Best Bacon recipes in ‘Sweet” & ‘Savory” categories. And what would a Bacon festival be without carny games.
