Bacon & Barrels
Saturday, July 19th
Bacon & Barrels was started in 2013 in Los Olivos, Santa Barbara’s wine country, and attracts a sellout crowd as soon as tickets go on sale. The all‐day event challenges participating chefs to create their most imaginative, fresh recipes incorporating bacon, and highlights the best artisan and craft barrel beverages such as bourbon, beer, wine, and scotch. A celebrity chef will be manning the VIP tent, and the best mixologist and chef of the event will be awarded the "Jefe del Porko" award!
The event will support Los Olivos School, and help provide Science and Technology education to a rural school that receives little in funding from the State ‐‐ a percentage of all ticket sales will be donated to the Los Olivos School. Bacon & Barrels will also incorporate its proprietary Environmental Event process, with a goal of 95% of all event trash diverted from the Landfill. Bacon & Barrels provides receptacles for Compost, Recycling, and Trash with a sorting team to assist in the process; all serve ware, and cutlery are 100% biodegradable.
