Atlanta’s Favorite Celebration of Bacon, Beer, Booths, and Boisterous Hijinks Returns Home on Saturday, March 26, 2016  

 Proceeds Benefiting Dad’s Garage Theatre Company

Atlanta, Georgia (February 16, 2016) – This important news bulletin is brought to you by the letter B. Bacon, beer, booths and other letter B-centric oddities and attractions will once again be able to call Dad’s Garage Theatre home. Atlanta’s outrageously savory and oft-salacious annual event, BaconFest, is set to return in 2016, but to a brand new location – the 20-year-old theatre company’s new home at 569 Ezzard Street, just off of Edgewood Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward. The 16th annual event takes place Saturday, March 26, 2016 and will be the first time Dad’s has hosted BaconFest since the great wrecking ball incident of 2013 (details below). For now, we urge bacon-lovers to keep that date open and their attention locked on Dad’s, as the innovative, comedic crew will be revealing juicy details in the coming weeks about the 2016 meaty extravaganza.  Tickets start at $25 for ages 21 and up and go on sale Monday, February 15, 2016 at

Founded in 1992, the kitschy festival has become a fixture in the Atlanta community by combining troughs upon troughs of cold beer and sizzlin’ bacon with hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city and unforgettable entertainment like a hobo wine tasting, naughty face painting, drunken spelling bee, a scavenger hunt, and more.  Selling out every year, all proceeds benefit Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, a nonprofit theatre group that engages, cultivates and inspires artists and audiences alike by producing innovative, scripted and improvised works that are recognized locally, nationally and internationally for being undeniably awesome.

Ticket Options for the 16th Annual BaconFest: 

Portioned Porking (Starting at $25 online, $30 gate): Admission to the festival, limited games, and three cups full of beer, bacon or both.

Bottomless Bacon (Starting at $45, online, $50 gate): Admission to the festival, unlimited game playing, and unlimited beer and bacon.

Go WHOLE HOG! (Starting at $85, $90 gate) Bottomless Bacon, Fast pass through all games, beer, and bacon lines.
Depending upon availability, tickets can be purchased at the door. Pricing is subject to increase. The event will be held no matter rain or shine for ages 21 and up. There is no parking for this event and attendees are encouraged to take a safe-ride option. For more information, directions or to purchase tickets visit or call 404.523.3141.

About Dad’s Garage Theatre Company: 
Founded in 1995, Dad’s Garage Theatre Company has grown from a small volunteer led organization to a thriving mid-size theatre led by professional artistic and administrative staff that includes over 300 volunteers and performers. In 2013, Dad’s Garage which had entertained more than 30,000 people annually at their two-theatre facility in Inman Park, was forced to look for a new home as a result of development in the area. Temporarily staying at neighboring 7 Stages Theatre in Little Five Points, the Theatre continued to produce its own productions in addition to public events across Atlanta and the state, and at improv festivals across the continent.  Dad’s Garage Theatre officially celebrated the opening of its new location the Old Fourth Ward on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2015.

Atlanta, GA – The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation is excited to host its 9th annual Night of Spectacles event on Saturday April 2, 2016 at the historic Foundry at Puritan Mill. Night of Spectacles began as a way for the Lighthouse to meet growing funding needs while engaging the wider community in our mission to provide vision and hearing services to thousands of uninsured and underinsured Georgians.


The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation provides access to affordable vision and hearing care to all 159 counties in Georgia, delivering services to residents of all ages. We work with over 350 partners annually to create a comprehensive and statewide network of care. In 2015, we served 7,444 Georgia residents by providing eyeglasses, eye exams, consultations, hearing aids and surgical procedures. Restoring the world of sight and sound is life-changing for many of our patients.


Night of Spectacles’ signature “Fashion with a Mission” runway competition brings local aspiring fashion designers to the stage with creations made using broken eyewear parts from our Recycling Program. The evening also features a silent and live auction, live entertainment and a seated dinner. We anticipate 300 guests in attendance, including doctors and healthcare professionals, corporate leaders, fashion designers and media representatives.
