Do you love bacon? ArtsQuest has cooked up an event with you in mind.
The first annual 'Bacontopia: A Celebration of Bacon' event will be held Nov. 10 from 1-4 at the Musikfest Cafe at 101 Founders Way in Bethlehem.
At the event, bacon aficionados will enjoy a sizzing Sunday filled with delicious bacon dishes.
Some of those include bacon fries, Sweet & Spicy Roasted Bacon, bacon breakfast napoleon, cream of bacon soup, bacon burger sliders and spicy pork belly.
For those with a sweet tooth, wrap your senses around bacon lollipops, bacon cupcakes with maple icing and dark chocolate with bacon swirl ice cream.
The event will also highlight bacon-themed presentations and entertainment, according to organizers.
Lancaster County butcher Tony Page will be on hand to offer bacon and pork products, including advice and recipes.
D.G. Yuengling & Son brewmaster John Callahan will offer presentations on pairing Yuengling beers with bacon and pork dishes.
All attendees will receive a Bacontopia Passport to get stamped each time they sample a bacon dish. Everyone who samples all 10 items will be interested into a drawing to win Musikfest Cafe concert tickets.
All proceeds from the event will benefit ArtsQuest's arts education programming.
Tickets are $35 and go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. to ArtsQuest members and to the public on Friday at 10 a.m.
Tickets can be purchased at artsquest.org and 610-332-3378.
