2013 Bacon and Beer Festival Planned for May 4

A popular event that features both bacon and beer will be returning to Boston this spring.

According to the event page, the 2013 Boston Bacon and Beer Festival will be held at the House of Blues across from Fenway Park on Saturday, May 4 from 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM, with proceeds helping support the hunger relief organizations Lovin' Spoonfuls and Community Servings. At this point in time, little information has been given on the event, with the page stating "More details to be released in coming weeks including participants, other events, and ticket on sales date. For the MOST up to date information please sign up on the mailing list."

Last year the Boston Bacon and Beer Festival was a week-long event that included a harbor cruise and an art show.
