A giant bacon festival is taking over Brooklyn next weekend

By Christina Izzo

Somewhere, Ron Swanson is smiling behind his epic mustache—the Great Big Bacon Picnic returns to Williamsburg for the second year next weekend.

More than 100 chefs, food trucks, brew masters and food-world folks will descend upon the Old Pfizer Factory on Saturday, September 24 and Sunday the 25th, and with them come mountains of bacon. Swine savants can enjoy unlimited—yes, unlimited—bacon bites, including smoked pork-belly tacos with poblano-lime ranch from Tres Carnes, black-pepper thick-cut bacon with horseradish glaze from Tellers and sweets lie bacon-butter-crunch toffee from Roni-Sue's Chocolates.
