There are a couple of perks to buying your Thomas Dostal Developers BaconFest ticket in advance, so don't wait to take advantage!

The number one reason you need to get your BaconFest ticket in advance is to save some money! Ticket prices will go up if you buy them at the door, so if you get them now that means you'll have extra money for Bacon Bucks, which will get you more delicious samples at the festival. You can also pick up a $5 off coupon at Hawkeye Convenience Stores in the area to save even MORE cash.

What are some of those samples, you ask? A few of my favorites are Midwest Chili Bacon Nachos, Slammin' Bacon BBQ Meatballs, and Bacon-Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos. YUMMMMM!

Another good reason to get your ticket early? There's no wait at the door! We just scan your ticket and BOOM. You can get right to sampling!

Don't forget that your ticket also includes $15 in Bacon Bucks AND a goodie bag from Cedar Rapids Area Association of Realtors which includes: a koozie, coupons, and an exclusive BaconFest tote!

The date of the event is Saturday, September 26th, so hurry up and buy your ticket!
