Northshore Baconfest Volunteers Needed

Posted by Allyson

Hopefully, you've heard that on Saturday, April 27, the Friends of Wagner Farm will be hosting the first-ever Northshore Baconfest at Wagner Farm!  This adult only event will feature tastings of imaginative bacon creations prepared by chefs from many of the Northshore's best restaurants along with a side of live music featuring Bucky Halker, a cash bar, and an array of unique bacon-related merchandise available for purchase.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Friends of Wagner Farm, a 501 (c)(3) support organization that provides funding for major initiatives and public programs offered by Wagner Farm. 

There are a couple of ways to get involved in this first-of-its-kind event.  You can attend the event as a guest by purchasing tickets online at  Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.  Or, you can volunteer!  Volunteers will be needed in a variety of areas on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 ranging from setup crew, vendor check-in, and coat check to chef attendants, table bussers, facility monitors and VIP gift bag stuffers.  Sign up individually or with your business or organization and receive a free Northshore Baconfest t-shirt (and free smells)!
