Perhaps you've heard of the Baconfest happening in Portland this October?
Maeve and Jess are hosting their own damn vegan baconfest, or FAKINFEST, on October 3rd in Colonel Summers Park (SE 20th and Belmont) at 2 pm.
It will be a potluck-style celebration of vegan bacon and bacon-flavored things.
aka, this is really a picnic with a cause! a point!
Please bring a blanket, a plate, utensils for yourself, and bacon-inspired food (and/or beverages) to share!
Don't limit yourself to tempeh bacon, though we love it - there's also tofu bacon, eggplant bacon and coconut bacon!
Maple fake bacon anything is welcome.
There will be two contests-- Best Dish and Most Creative. We're hoping for some pretty awesome prizes and celebrity guest judges!
Also, feel free to dress like your favorite pop culture pig.
There is a suggested $5 donation, to be given to Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, which helps pigs and other farm animals!
