At THE HOG, we love bacon! That’s why we’re soooo excited that the 5th annual BACONFEST MILWAUKEE presented by Wisconsin’s own award-winning Patrick Cudahy at the Event Center inside Potawatomi Hotel & Casino was such a success!

Thousands of HOG Heads devoured unique bacon creations along with some classic favorites prepared by Southeast Wisconsin’s best chefs and restaurants!


This year’s BACONFEST MKE was an Official Qualifying Event of the World Food Championships. Select restaurants competed to earn a “Golden Ticket” to participate at the World Food Championships in the World Burger Championship this November – where the winner takes home $100,000! Good luck to our qualifier: Saloon on Calhoun with Bacon!
