Perhaps you've heard of the Baconfest happening in Portland this October?
Maeve and Jess are hosting their own damn vegan baconfest, or FAKINFEST.
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 and 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 (Lightlife is donating smart and fakin bacon!) and vegan celebrity guest judges!
Also, a reading of fakin-themed haikus! Start writing folks!
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!
