The Baconfest Triumvirate:

Baconfest Chicago is the brain-child of founders Michael Griggs, Andre Vonbaconvitch and Seth Zurer.  Founded in 2008, our goal was simple:  Bring to the City of Chicago a world-class culinary and cultural festival dedicated to all things Bacon featuring the City’s best Chefs/Restaurants, Bacon-vendors and entrepreneurs.

Now in our 4th full season, with a successful and dynamic track record of events behind us, we look forward to Baconfest Chicago 2012 on Saturday April 14th at the UIC FORUM.

Throughout the year, we produce content about Chicago’s bacon universe, the restaurant world, and the food industry in general which we distribute via our website, twitter feed and Facebook page.
