9th annual Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Fest
March 25 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Bottoms up & Bacon down! Join us this year as we expand the tastings and explore the best bourbons & bacon delights from around the world. We are excited to welcome you back for the 9th annual Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Fest. Held on the grounds surrounding the Village of Wellington Town Center Promenade. The free event is scheduled for March 25th & March 26th 2023 and offers you the opportunity to taste from a selection of more than 30+ bourbons and celebrates the most loved food in the universe – BACON!
In 2018 The Cooking Channel featured us on their hit show, “Carnival Eats”! Host Noah Cappe enjoyed Chef Winston’s great Garlic Mojo Corn Cakes in addition to a vast array of garlic laced goodies!
The two-day event features artist & crafters, an eclectic menu of bacon infused culinary delights and a collection of over 30+ bourbons and whiskeys for your tasting pleasure. The Fest also offers participants exclusive bacon and bourbon pairing seminars. South Florida’s foremost Bourbon experts share the distiller’s art and patient techniques in the seminars while a local Chef prepares “bites” to complement the tastings. For those of you whom cannot be convinced to partake in Bourbon, we will have a full liquor bar, wine, and ice-cold beer too.
Our menu of bacon and pork related dishes will include the sublime Forever Roasted Bourbon BBQ Pork & Bacon Sandwich to the insane candied bacon on a stick and other amazing desserts. Menu items developed by local chefs explore the boundaries of New American Cuisine and good old-fashioned comfort foods, just like Mom used to make!
At the heart of all our festivals is our commitment to create fun-filled food lover community events featuring unique food and beverages. We strive to ensure that our sponsors are richly rewarded for their investment in our events and our community. The event’s strong commitment to the community is that they are designed as a fund-raising opportunity for non-profit organizations that staff the event.
We’ve cleared it with your doctor, your cardiologist, and your mother; indulge in the sweet smell of bacon & guzzle down the smooth taste of bourbon at the Wellington Beach Bacon & Bourbon Festival.
