Austin Bacon and Beer Festival 2016 Postponed


Due to circumstances beyond our control, Edible Austin and Eat Boston regret to announce that the 2016 Austin Bacon and Beer Festival, scheduled for this Sunday, January 24, 2016, will be postponed. We are currently exploring all options for rescheduling this summer.

All ticket buyers will be refunded in full. They will be notified of the rescheduled event and be given the opportunity to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the general public. 

Now in its third year, the Austin Bacon and Beer Festival is a vibrant community and culinary experience that raises much needed funds for the Central Texas nonprofit Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB). Last year, we raised more than $10,000 with this event, which is the equivalent of 40,000 meals for hungry Central Texans. We appreciate Austin’s support of this benefit and look forward to seeing everyone at the rescheduled festival.

The Bacon

Many of our amazing participants will be featuring specials on their weekend menus utilizing pork generously donated by Niman Ranch and Lone Star Foodservice. We will be announcing where you can find these tasty, bacon-centric treats and dishes via social media @edibleaustin in hopes that ticket holders can get their bacon and beer fix this weekend.
