Zingerman's 11th Annual Camp Bacon

Dear Campers and Bacon Lovers,

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well! We had high hopes a year ago at this time for a 2022 event, but there are just too many obstacles in the way to make it viable this year. After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19, we are postponing Zingerman’s Camp Bacon events for another year. While it is not the outcome we wanted, the safety of our attendees, participants, and staff is our number one priority. We understand that this will come as a disappointment to those who had planned to attend or support Camp Bacon this year. However, we want to make sure we are doing the responsible thing in supporting the health of our communities.
We would love to invite all of you to join us next year! Once we have a date for Zingerman’s Camp Bacon 2023, we will announce it on social media and our website. If you have questions or would like a recipe to try, please email the Camp Bacon Director at [email protected]. In the meantime, we’ll imagine you all safe, frying up more of the good stuff. Until we meet (and eat bacon) again,

Your Camp Director


—Save the Date!— June 2023

Bacon for the brain, belly, and soul

Zingerman’s Camp Bacon® is a 5-day food learning and eating experience. You can choose just one event or join them all. The week includes the Main Event featuring an all-day line-up of captivating guest speakers and a menu of scrumptious bacon bites. It also includes the Bacon Ball dinner, Bacon Film Festival, Bacon Street Fair, tastings, classes, and more. It is a food camp that satisfies your mind as much as your taste buds. Don’t get us wrong, you will leave having tasted a lot of bacon, but we are there to share the story behind it. This unique bacon opportunity only comes once a year, so don’t miss it!
