BaconFest 2024
Join us on June 01
BaconFest is one of our signature private fundraisers here at the Lu. How's this sound: 50-pound BLT bar, a Bac-Off cooking competition, 10 gallons of infused spirits, and more bands than you can shake a pig at? It's also the official launching pad of Summer in the Seacoast, and we're honored to have y'all, whether it's your first time in or if you've attended every one of our 13 BaconFests. 

We're still working on the music schedule, but for now, get your tickets before you're left to go to the market.

Food & Beverages
BaconFest 2024 will feature a gourmet BLT bar with 50 pounds of fresh bacon and more fixings than you can shake a hog at. We'll also have plenty of fresh-infused cocktails, locally sourced beer, spritzers, sangria, and adult treats because we live in Maine. We'll have side dishes, Lu Dogs, charcoal-cooked pizza, and bacon-flavored popcorn. You're welcome to bring a side dish. If you go hungry at BaconFest, it's your damned fault!
