Bacon all the rules for a cracklin’ good time
WARNING – This is not for the health conscious

Bacon Brewfest

Fans of bacon and beer will unite and delight in this festival celebrating all that these favourites' encompass. This cured pork meat is no longer just a side to eggs and sausages but engrained in desserts, sauces and even mints. Yes, there are bacon-flavoured mints you can purchase. Beer has made its way into dishes too and has been combined with bacon into a beer-candied bacon.

Central Park

Taking place at the urban village of Central Park in Chippendale, affectionately known as 'the living mall' because of the greenery both inside and outside, this downtown destination will feature everything from bacon toothpaste and shampoo to maple bacon, bourbon bacon, bacon steak, bacon shakes and bacon cocktails. It's bacon all the rules with over 45 stall holders participating, including Black Star Pastry, Bovine & Swine, Adriano Zumbo,Textbook Boulangerie-Patisserie, N2 Extreme Gelato, Brewristas, Dragonfly Foods, Grumpy Donuts, The Stinking Bishops Cheese, The Pig Baron and The Vogue Cafe.
