Bacon, beer and shenanigan lovers....
It's hard to believe the 14th annual BaconFest is right around the corner on Saturday, March 29. This year's event will take over the Masquerade Music Park, and as always, will feature copious amounts of bacon and beer. Additionally, Dad's Garage Theatre has announced the bands, entertainment lineup, and games for this year's event.
Full of kitsch and not for the faint of heart, the game and entertainment booths at BaconFest are created and manned by the wildly entertaining Dad’s Garage improv actors. This year’s games include: Hobo Wine Tasting with the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club; Chill the Eff Out with Lucky Yates; Improvised Advice; Shut the Box; Terrible Caricatures; Compliments by Karen; Mistress Scraps, Fortune Teller; Dr. Boobies, M.D.; Sanitary Smooches; Naughty Face Painting; Shecky Bergman's Mini Roast; Game On's Video Game Truck; Adult Bounce House; Fitness Battalion's Fitness Challenge (winner gets a treat, loser gets a carrot); Mary Todd Hair and Beard Stylings; Bone Lick BBQ Stand Up Comedy Booth; Kanga Blaster Booth; Palookaville Corndog Obstacle Course; The Wheel of Schatz; and the Turner Bike Face Off.
Local businesses have also jumped on board to provide tastings, activities, and special offerings for attendees, including Whynatte, Happy Hour Confections, Frozen Pints Ice Cream, Bone Lick BBQ, Establishment, The Wrecking Bar, The Atlanta Rollergirls, Dough Bakery, and The Atlanta Freedom Band.
While the more than 2,250 pounds of bacon donated by The Vortex Bar & Grill and cooked up by Thumbs Up Diner is always the main attraction, this year, Dad’s Garage has booked four local favorites to take the stage that are sure to keep the event rocking from start to finish. BaconFest’s 2014 entertainment lineup is comprised of Thimblerig Circus; Blast Off Burlesque; The Seed and Feed Marching Abominable; The Dirt Poets; and The Soggy Top Boys.
