Do you love bacon? Of course you do - who doesn't?! Well, a new event coming to Duluth is sure to tempt your tastebuds.

Baconpalooza is a fun, unique tasting of everything bacon produced by Townsquare Live Events, manager Kimberly Carr says that "anything from bacon lattes to bacon cream cheese to chocolate covered bacon and everything in-between" will be available at the inaugural Baconpalooza, May 8th at UMD's Kirby Ballroom.

"Bacon is hot right now.  Americans are falling in love with bacon all over again," said Carr who settled on the name Baconpalooza after many great suggestions came her way, including Heaven Bacon, Baconfest, and Sizzlin' Showdown, "however, Baconpalooza sounds like the party we have planned. A celebration of bacon! Bacon lovers unite!"

Carr recommends skipping lunch that day "because you are going to get your fill of delicious bacon recipes! And be sure to bring all of your bacon-loving friends!"

Tickets are on sale now for $7, or they'll be available at the door for $10.
