Season’s Greetings Bacon Nation:

We at Baconfest Chicago are happy to report that our limited release of early-action VIP tickets for Baconfest Chicago on April 9th at the UIC Forum is completely SOLD OUT!

Thanks nation for helping to spread the word and for your trust in us to deliver a spectacular Bacon Festival.  And that is exactly what we are going to deliver.  Chef/vendor recruitment blazes on, and we’ll be going public with the roster next year as we get close to releasing general admission tickets.

To those loyal and intrepid Baconfest Chicago fans out there who’ve secured their VIP Tickets, we say:  Hoozah!

Everyone else, rest assured there will be (as there were last year) fun contests for tickets including but not limited to the Bacon Poetry contest, Bacon Song contest, and Bacon Youtube Video contest.  Keep your eyes peeled on Facebook/twitter – and of course if you’re not already on the mailing list, fix that at (upper right hand corner).

Also, we’d like to announce our new “Premier” Presenting Sponsor:  The Illinois Pork Producers Association.  They were proud sponsors last year, and have decided to raise their sponsorship commitment to the Platinum Premier level for 2011.  That’s right, our new tag-line: The Illinois Pork Producers Association presents Baconfest Chicago 2011! A more formal Press announcement will follow soon.  It ain’t easy (or cheap) throwing a bacon-bash of this scope, and we could not be more grateful for their support.


And finally, Seth, Mike and I just want to wish all of you out there a very happy, relaxing and bacon-filled holidays, and a splendid New Year.

Viva-la Bacon!
