You had me at bacon... Jiffy Lube BaconFest YEG is back

by Jiffy Lube BaconFestYEG

Come celebrate the most awesome meat in the world - bacon! Jiffy Lube BaconFestYEG is a fun festival of bacon, music, bacon, comedy and above all else – bacon.
Jiffy Lube BaconFestYEG will take place Tuesday June 30, 2015 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm in and around the Jubilee Auditorium Lobby and Grounds in Edmonton, Alberta. It will be an evening dedicated to the king of meats followed immediately by a night of meat sweats!                                                             
Inside the lobby of Jubilee Auditorium will be a ticketed event with delicious bacon offerings from culinary food and beverage stations. Co-ordinated by Celebrity Chef Brad Smoliak (Kitchen Culinary Studio), each hand-picked restaurant station will have Edmonton’s top chefs preparing the most decadent and tantalizing bacon dishes. From the famous The Lingnan Restaurant ( FoodNetwork’s  “The Family Restaurant”)  try spicy bacon wrapped chicken; or munch on a “Belly to Belly” Bacon Praline from Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse, or nibble on scrumptious Chocolate Bacon Cookies from Sugared & Spiced - - they’ll be plenty more of one of a kind creations sure to please even the most discerning bacon-files. ~ Mmmm ... bacon~ Check out the Sow Belly Lounge where you can sample fine wine, scotch, and imported beer which were hand selected to pair with bacon– all included in your ticket price. We even have bacon-vodka Caesars!
Over 700 Bacon enthusiasts took in the first BaconFest YEG in 2014 – this year there’s more for the party hogs in Edmonton! Enjoy DJ’s, squeal to the comedy of Bacon-Improv (Atomic Improv), a bacon game-show and a surprise performance dedicated to – you guessed it – bacon! Socialize with your bacon loving friends, take a selfie with Edmonton’s Bacon Meister (back by popular demand) and dance the night away to hits like Footloose from the movie. Starring Kevin Bacon.

For those without a ticket, you are free to purchase food from food trucks outdoors, each serving up bacon inspired dishes. Surrounding the trucks will be some fun entertainment and some free goodies as well! Just follow the smell of the outdoor pig roast.

Don’t miss the first sizizling party of the summer… Everyone will be going whole hog celebrating Canada and what it’s known for best- - Bacon!
