Now in its sixth year, Baconfest continues to draw the best restaurants and crowds of hungry fans to its two-day event. Over 170 restaurants serve creative bacon dishes over three sessions. Last year, Baconfest served to a sold-out crowd of over 5,000 people.
Attendees can look forward to dishes from Chicago favorites Carnitas Uruapan, Mindy’s Hot Chocolate, and Piece, as well as last year’s winners Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse, Farmhouse, and Bang Bang Pie Shop.
