This week on the podcast we are talking to Jake Briggs, the founder of the Beer & Bacon Fest (previously known as the Bacon, Beer, Boobs Fest). For those who aren’t familiar; Beer and Bacon Fest is a festival dedicated to Bacon and Beer while raising money to for Breast Cancer Network of WNY. Last year was the first ever festival and I had the privilege of being one of the Bacon Judges, a dream come true. I had a really good time and despite some weather scares, the event had a really good showing and some money was raised for a good cause. I invited Jake to the studio a couple weeks ago to talk about the experience of putting together a festival, how the idea came to be and what he has planned for this year.
The 2nd Annual Beer and Bacon Fest is taking place on Saturday, August 31st at Island Park in Williamsville.
