BFKCOne of the coolest annual events I’ve been hearing about ever since I arrived in Kansas City earlier this year is the Bacon-Fest a celebration of the cured meat of the Gods and a fundraiser for a local cause.

I was looking forward to this event forever, um, it is all about bacon… But my heart dropped when I realized this year’s event was planned for August 23 – when I will be on a trip back to New England.

However, I am excited to call attention to Bacon-Fest – to be held at Kansas City’s landmark Union Station, for anyone in the area or within a ten hour flight…

About Kansas City’s Bacon-Fest: “For the love of bacon, come join the fun at Bacon-Fest: The Other Fundraiser on August 23, 2014! If you love (or even like) bacon, you will have a good time and help out a great cause at the same time – the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City RIKC). Local restaurants will serve up samples of creative bacon fare while you enjoy a cold beer, unique bacon drinks and live music. All guests will receive a commemorative drink cup to enjoy your beer in at the event & a Bacon-Fest t-shirt.”

Bacon Fest will be held on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at Kansas City’s Union Station.
