Bottoms up & Bacon down! This year the tastings are expanded and explore the best bourbons & bacon delights from around the world. The Village Council of Wellington and Buffalo Trace welcomes you back for the 6th annual Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Fest. Held on the grounds surrounding the new Village of Wellington Community Center and amphitheater, the free event is scheduled for March 21 – 22, 2020 an offers you the opportunity to taste from a selection of more than 60+ bourbons and celebrates the most loved food in the universe – BACON!

In 2018 The Cooking Channel featured this event 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 great live music, artist & crafters, an eclectic menu of bacon infused culinary delights and a collection of over 60 bourbons and whiskeys for your tasting pleasure. The Fest also offers participants exclusive bacon and bourbon pairing seminars including exclusive Pappy Van Winkle tastings. South Florida’s foremost Bourbon experts share the distiller’s art and patient techniques in the seminars and tastings. All intended to enhance your knowledge and pleasure of American made Bourbon and whiskey. And, they will throw an Irish whiskey or rye into the mix for historical purposes. For those of you whom cannot be convinced to partake in Bourbon, they will have a few fine wines 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 Bacon Bar featuring chocolate covered and caramel nut dipped bacon and bacon desserts. Menu items developed by local chefs explore the boundaries of New American Cuisine and the Farm to Table movement to good old-fashioned comfort foods, just like Mom used to make.

They'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.
