DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Bacon lovers from all over Iowa will converge on the Grand River Center October 1 for the 2015 Dubuque Area Baconfest.

The event goes from 5-9 p.m.

You'll be able to enjoy samples of creative bacon dishes prepared by area chefs from restaurants, BBQ pits and caterers.  DJ Steve Hemmer will be providing the music, while you try the different dishes, and take part in the Hormel eating contest and the Oink-off contest.

All proceeds go to Area Residential Care and support their mission of empowering people with intellectual disabilities.

Tickets are now on sale at ARC or www.dbqbacon.org.  General admission tickets are $25 each and VIP tickets are $45.  VIP tickets allow you to enter early, taste all the food before everyone and will receive a special gift at the event.
