Returning for its monumental 10th annual celebration, the Wellington Bacon & Bourbon Fest invites you to immerse yourself in an unforgettable experience at the captivating Village of Wellington Town Center Promenade. Mark your calendars for the thrilling dates of March 23rd and March 24th, 2024, as this free event takes you on a mouthwatering exploration, offering a selection of over 30+ bourbons to tempt your taste buds. And let’s not forget the star of the show – the universally adored BACON!

Prepare to be awestruck as we transport you back to the year 2018 when The Cooking Channel showcased our festival on their sensational hit show, “Carnival Eats”! The charismatic host, Noah Cappe, indulged in the culinary genius of Chef Winston, savoring the delectable Garlic Mojo Corn Cakes and a cornucopia of garlic-infused delights.

But that’s just the beginning of the excitement! This two-day extravaganza goes beyond bourbon and bacon, featuring talented artists and crafters, an exquisite menu brimming with bacon-infused culinary wonders, and an unparalleled collection of 30+ bourbons and whiskeys for you to relish. As if that weren’t enough, we present exclusive bacon and bourbon pairing seminars, where South Florida’s foremost Bourbon experts reveal the secrets of the distiller’s art, while a local Chef creates tantalizing “bites” to enhance your tasting experience. And for those non-Bourbon enthusiasts among us, fear not! A full liquor bar, fine wine, and refreshing ice-cold beer await your pleasure.

From the divine Forever Roasted Bourbon BBQ Pork & Bacon Sandwich to the mind-blowing candied bacon on a stick and a plethora of other astonishing desserts, the menu will push the boundaries of New American Cuisine and take you on a nostalgic journey to the comforting flavors of Mom’s home cooking.

But this festival is more than just a feast for the senses; it’s a celebration of community and a chance to make a difference. We are devoted to creating joyous food lover gatherings that bring our community together while supporting non-profit organizations. By participating in this event, you’re not only treating yourself to unforgettable moments but also contributing to a worthy cause.
