April 23, 2017 will be an incredibly busy day downtown, but so worth it, especially since you can just walk a couple blocks in any direction to Union Plaza, where you'll find enough bacon to choke a small pony.

But you know, don't choke, okay?

Still, if you're wondering exactly what gets served at a BaconFest, here's your handy-dandy guide.

(NOTE: Menu and vendors are subject to change, because this is the real world, and stuff happens, yo.)
