Bacon & Barrels is the definitive outdoor festival for the bacon obsessed foodies and those who prefer their drinks from a barrel. 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 and the title of Top Chef in next year’s VIP tent.
