BaconFest Atlanta 2016 @ Dad's Garage
Mar 26 all-day

Atlanta’s outrageously savory and oft-salacious annual event, BaconFest, is set to return in 2016, but to a brand new location – the 20-year-old theatre company’s new home at 569 Ezzard Street, just off of Edgewood Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward. The 16th annual event takes place Saturday, March 26, 2016 and will be the first time Dad’s has hosted BaconFest since the great wrecking ball incident of 2013. For now, we urge bacon-lovers to keep that date open and their attention locked on Dad’s, as the innovative, comedic crew will be revealing juicy details in the coming weeks about the 2016 meaty extravaganza.
