The Great Big Bacon Picnic



I can never get enough of bacon! Bacon, bacon, bacon!!!

Brooklyn’s first bacon festival, The Great Big Bacon Picnic will be far from being short on bacon. My fellow bacon lovers get ready to indulge on Saturday May 16th, 2015 and Sunday May 17th, 2015 at The Old Pfizer Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The weekend long event created by Great Big Food Events LLC and co-founders/brothers Craig and Lon Taylor is an indoor/outdoor gourmet celebration of the most amazing food item ever created – BACON!

There will be over 100 chefs, restaurants, food trucks, brew masters, mixologists, and culinary experts from all over NYC will be in attendance. To keep us on our dancing toes, Brooklyn’s own High & Mighty Brass Band who played both Bonnaroo and the Governors Ball in 2014, will be on-hand adding their New Orleans/ NYC sounds.

The festivals three different sessions will all feature inspired bite-sized bacon dishes, craft beers and specialty cocktails, and…. WAIT FOR IT……..the Great Big Bacon Picnic will have a “Bacon Bar” – YES, a bar supplied only with different varieties of bacon. Whoo hoo!

A panel of judges as well as the patrons via votes will be giving prize awards out ranging from $500 – $2,500.
