A fixture in the Atlanta community, Dad’s Garage Theatre’s 17th annual BaconFest will combine troughs upon troughs of cold beer and sizzlin’ bacon with hilarious carnival games like a hobo wine tasting, naughty face painting, and a flip cup tournament manned by the best improvisers in the city.  Selling out every year, all proceeds benefit Dad’s Garage – a nonprofit theatre group that engages, cultivates and inspires artists and audiences alike by producing innovative, scripted and improvised works that are recognized locally, nationally and internationally for being undeniably awesome.
