    I wish I could do that. Wisconsin is where my granddad used to live and where a lot of my family still is. But I live here in Colorado. The Madison area is really cool That's where my granddad was from. dinky Little Town called Hazel Green Wisconsin probably about 40 miles away from Madison if memory serves. Anyhow you guys have fun I really wish I could be there

    If you want to join us for a Legacy Tour of the Leinenkugel's Brewery, then you need to purchase a ticket for the Saturday, May 16th - 11 am tour. (Kids under 21 can join the tour, just not sample the beverages.)

    Tour lasts about an hour. Adult ticket price is $12. Kids under 21 are free.

    Tours are limited to only 15 people, so purchase your ticket today! I'm in talks with Leinenkugel and they say the May tours sell out during March, so buy your ticket in February! And if we get enough people, they might add a 2nd tour so when you buy your ticket under the optional comment write: BACONFEST (and mark in on our Google Registration Sheet too).

    Purchase tour ticket here:https://www.leinie.com/tours#id=chip...6-d506386577b4

    I just got off the phone with the Leinenkugel Tour folks and our day/time is almost half full. Since current tours are on hold until April 3rd, they anticipate a potential rush of ticket sales once tours are back on. Moral of the story, get your ticket by the end of March to guarantee your spot.

    BACONFEST 2020 will now be Fri. June 5 - 7. Same location. Same activities. Only the date has changed.

    Tiffany (from Leinenkugel) called me and let me know they have cancelled their brewery tours through May and will start again in June. For anyone who booked their tour ticket already, look for an email coming soon about refunds. You'll need to repurchase a ticket.

    Our group site was available for June 5-7, so I reserved it. The next opening on that site was fall so I feel pretty lucky to get it! If someone has already paid for their BACONFEST registration and now can't attend, I'll refund your money, just PM me.

    In this COVID-19 time, plans are fluid. So, while we schedule an event, we all know everything is dependent on keeping everybody safe. This is our new plan given the latest information. When/if any new information comes available which might warrant a different decision, please know it will be made thoughtfully. Do what you need to do to stay safe and healthy everybody! Hang in there!

    1. As of the latest WI update, camping at state parks is closed until May 26 and it remains unclear if campsites will open for June. So, BACONFEST remains on, but tentative. https://www.wearegreenbay.com/corona...ays-gov-evers/

    2. I've reduced the maximum number of campers from 30 down to 20. If camping opens up for June, it might be with number restrictions and I might have to cap at 10. We already have 6 people signed up. It's a wait and see game right now.
