It may have seemed like it wouldn’t happen until the day that pigs fly, but now that hurricane season is over, Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale and Covenant House Florida are pleased announce the very much anticipated Bacon Bash is coming to Esplanade Park on Sunday, January 22nd from 1 pm to 5 pm.

bacon-bash-1They’re making bacon great again with a FREE family friendly event with a healthy serving of all things bacon. Bacon is so intoxicating, it might as well have a legal age limit, but the FDA hasn’t caught on, so kids can have it too! General admission is free for all ages, but for a $30 prepaid donation ($35 day of the event) guests 21+ can gain access to the VIP section. As VIP’ers, guests can enjoy 10 complimentary adult beverage samples (including specialty beers and multiple fine spirits) and small bites with specialty seating in the shade, away from the little piggies.

Enjoy games and activities for guests of all ages while DJ Two Story Lori provides the tunes for the day. The real lure of the day is the bacon and there will be plenty of it. Every way you turn, pig inspired recipes will beckon and dishes, both sweet and savory, will start at just $5.00.

Local chefs from participating restaurants and food trucks will compete for your votes. That’s right, your vote will count at Bacon Bash. Attendees can voice their choice to select the winner(s) of Most Creative Use of Bacon and Best Overall Bacon Dish titles. The best voter is an informed voter, so be prepared to try bites from Stash Box BBQ, Himmarshee Public House, The Downtowner, Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox, Big City Tavern, WOK, New River Pizza and Grille, E & J Texas BBQ, Tip A Roo, Pirate Brother’s BBQ, Hickory Sticks BBQ, I Love Tacos, Kitchen 420, Burger Fi, Hot Dog Hound, and Eats and Sweets.
