Area Residential Care’s


After careful consideration regarding the health and safety of Baconfest attendees, vendors and volunteers we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Baconfest event due to COVID-19. We look forward to celebrating the exceptional mission of Area Residential Care and our love for bacon at the 2021 Baconfest!

This unique bacon-themed evening features taste-testing and voting on the best bacon dishes from area restaurants, grocery stores, BBQ pits, and caterers. Local chefs from the finest local restaurants prepare and serve samples starring bacon and compete for best appetizer, best main dish, and best dessert.  

All proceeds from the event go to Area Residential Care and support their mission of empowering people with intellectual disabilities to achieve their highest quality of life.
