The Bacon and Beer Classic is an event produced by Cannonball Productions. A production company started by 31-year-old, Kate Levenstein, when she was 26.
Cannonball is known for annually produced popular culinary stadium events like the Bacon and Beer Classic. Which has become one of the most popular food and drink fests in the country. It consistently sells out in over 10 cities including New York, Chicago, Seattle, Santa Clara, Denver, and Minneapolis.
It’s nice to also mention that Cannonball’s newest event series is expanding. The Taco Takeover is expanding to 5 markets this year. The fest pairs refreshing cocktails with original Mexican dishes from each city’s best local chefs.
There will be many Instagrammable moments. Be on the lookout for the bacon-shaped see-saw. Take time out to shop for merchandise like bacon bibs, socks, t-shirts, and hoodies.
