The 1st Annual Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Festival will come to the village of Wellington from March 23-25, 2018. This boozy event will include a celebration of all things bacon and bourbon — along with VIP tastings, seminars, live music and some wine and beer to add to the mix.
The event kicks off on Friday night — so get ready to fulfill your bacon and bourbon cravings. Think — a bacon bar with chocolate covered and caramel nut dipped bacon, the soon-to-be-famous Forever Roasted Bourbon BBQ Pork & Bacon Sandwich and more. These a la carte items will be available for purchase, as will a variety of libations, including 40+ bourbons and whiskeys.
Guests will also enjoy backyard games like Jenga, checkers, pig races — and a corn hole tournament. The seminars and tastings will be priced individually — and there’s even a Pappy van Winkle tasting for 20 lucky participants. What’s a festival without some live music and the Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Festival has quite the line-up. Enjoy sounds by Taylor Road, Jerry Leeman & Big Medizen and Urban Gypsy Music and more.
A bottomless Bourbon Bloody March brunch will finish off the weekend.
