Attention all bacon fiends

From the PR peeps:

The 10th Annual Dad’s Garage BaconFest, a one-day event featuring live music, improv, games, beer, bacon and more, will be held on Saturday, March 27 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Dad’s Garage Theatre Company in Inman Park. A neighborhood tradition, each year Baconfest raises funds for the treasured mid-sized theatre that is devoted to elevating awareness about the arts in Atlanta.

Founded by Dad’s Garage co-founder George Faughnan in 1995, the meat-centric festival has grown to cult-like status, attracting a diverse and devoted legion of Atlantans each year. Building its following off a simple foundation of combining bacon, beer and bands, the festival also includes nonstop games. Past favorites include; Hunt an Improvisor, Guitar Hero Challenge, fortunetelling, X-rated face painting, and a malt liquor taste test challenge. Live music performances at this year’s event include local artists: Futureshock, Mike LaSage and the Stumbling Troubadours, The Jaguars, Nine Inch Neils, and a special DJ set by Judi Chicago’s Baron Saturday. Dad’s Garage’s house bands The Fingering Brothers and Bases Loaded will also make appearances.

In addition to the fun and games at BaconFest, festival goers can bid on an array of silent auction items donated by local businesses. This year’s silent auction will feature items donated by Dad’s Garage, Alternative Apparel, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Only You Tattoo, Third Half Studios, and many more.

Tickets for the 10th Annual Dad’s Garage Baconfest are sale now and are available from $15 to $45. Dad’s Garage will offer three ticket level categories: General Admission, Mid-Level and VIP. Mid-Level and VIP tickets will be available in limited quantities at $35 and $45, respectively. The VIP ticket will include a special improv performance following BaconFest at 5 p.m. Advanced tickets can be purchased online at the Dad’s Garage Ticket Office or at the gate the day of the event.

    It’s hard to top Baconpalooza, but I hadn’t seen a mention of this event in your blog yet and wanted to be sure you knew about it:
