May 31-June 4, 2017  Zingerman's Annual Camp Bacon
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Zingerman's Annual Camp Bacon celebrates all things bacon - from bacon makers, producers, poets, historians and musicians - all brought to you in a full day of learning, eating and fun. The Main Event is changing venues this year, moving out to Cornman Farms in Dexter, Michigan and begins at 7:30 am for breakfast.  Camp Bacon is a fundraiser in Ann Arbor, MI for Southern Foodways Alliance that brings together Bacon-Lovers, -Makers, Cooks, Curers and anyone who likes to learn, eat and enjoy cured and smoked pork belly. Curious? I hope so. Camp Bacon is four days of all things bacon — eating, learning, listening, tasting and talking; a pork-centric party that features everything from poetry to pigs.
