Our inaugural Delray Beach Bacon & Bourbon Festival last year met with overwhelming demands for bacon and bourbon! We are planning major enhancements to the event that promises you a great experience in 2016!
The Delray Beach Bacon & Bourbon Festival shines a loving light on our most flavorful food-Bacon, and the quintessential American liquor, Bourbon.
We return with an expanded menu of bacon and pork related dished from the sublime (Forever Roasted Bourbon BBQ Pork & Bacon Sandwich) to the insane (Bacon Ice Cream Sundae, Bourbon and Caramel Sauce anyone?). Menu items developed by local chefs exploring the boundaries of New American Cuisine and the Farm to Table movement to good old fashioned comfort foods, just like Mom used to make!
Another enhancement to this year’s version of the Bacon & Bourbon Fest, are the limited number of exhibitors. By invitation only, we will feature a very small number of specialty exhibitors and plenty of tables and chairs where you can mingle with friends and sip bourbon and eat fabulous bacon inspired dishes.
New this year is the Bacon & Bourbon Texas Hold’em Tournament with great Bourbon prizes. Stay tuned for details about signing up for this great tournament with proceeded benefitting the Non-profit organizations that volunteer at the event. We’ll have plenty of backyard games to play; corn hole, bocce ball, jenga, checkers and the now famous pig race game!
Completing the palate pleasing properties of bacon, we have an eclectic selection of bourbon and whiskeys. The distiller’s art and patient techniques are shared in a series of seminars and tastings. All intended to enhance your knowledge and pleasure of bourbon, rye and whiskey. We may throw an Irish-made whiskey into the mix for historical purposes.
Join us on March 18 & 19, 2016 for a culinary journey with a pig and a barrel in beautiful downtown Delray Beach. We’ve cleared it with your doctor; your cardiologist and your mother so come and play at the Delray Beach Bacon & Bourbon Festival.
