BACON CAMP – Saturday, August 27, 2011

Bacon. It’s delicious. And we’d all eat a pile of it if no one was watching. It deserves to be celebrated.

Wild Goose Creative is the official Columbus presenter for the national event BaconCamp! It is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment about bacon. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from participants who are the main actors of the event. It is community driven and everyone is encouraged to participate by presenting (food, art, demo), judging, or volunteering.

BaconCamp is not a spectator sport.

There are a limited number of tickets available, so buy them early! We do expect to sell out and we want to be able to celebrate bacon with you! Buy your tickets online here⇒

We will be holding a Bacon Cooking contest and a Bacon Art/Craft contest. We will have prizes available from amazing Columbus vendors and restaurants, and illustrious judges from local businesses. BaconCamp is proud to be held at North Market this year!

When: August 27th, 1-4 PM
Where: North Market, 59 Spruce Street, Columbus, OH 43215
