It is upon us. We have so many exciting elements to this year’s festival it is hard for me to contain myself. Joseph Lenn is cooking with Sean Brock. Blackberry farm is selecting wines for this dinner. Holly Hambright, Stanton Webster, Matt Gallaher and Ben and Amy Willis-Becker are collaborating to create bacon bar food at the Public House. Corsair Artisan Distillery will be our spirits partner. Mountain Valley Spring and Sparkling Water and Ijams are sponsors. Allan Benton will be hanging out all weekend. The BaconBits competition is new and improved. Head on over to the official website to get the low down on each event. Peruse, buy some tickets, start thinking of your BaconBits entry. It’s going to be a weekend of experimenting with swine.
