The smell of summer is in the air—and so is the smell of mouthwatering bacon. Zingerman’s 5th Annual  Bacon Camp kicks-off Thursday, May 29 with The Bacon Ball, the perfect place to mingle with smoked-swine enthusiasts. The four day Camp will feature: bacon art shows, bacon culture and history lessons from bacon makers, local musicians singing odes to bacon, and lip-smacking bacon-making classes. On Saturday, the main event includes presentations by experts, followed by the Street Fair on Sunday at the Artisan Market in Kerrytown (free admission and open to the public). The Fair will include bacon vendors doling out salty treats and peddling bacon-related knick-knacks.

Thursday, May 29-Sunday, June 1. Zingerman’s Roadhouse, 2501 Jackson Ave. The weekend Bacon classes times and prices vary,
