When is & where is BaconCamp San Francisco 2010?
How much does it cost to attend?
We ask for a sliding scale donation ($5+ ) at the door and proceeds go to the San Francisco Food Bank. You can also donate $15 on our fundraising page or sign up to present to guarantee your spot at BaconCamp
How can I participate?
- Bring food! A BaconCamp without bacon is just a bunch of hungry people standing around together. Sign up to bring food & enter the chef contest
- Create art. Drawings, poetry, sculptures anything that inspires you.
- Volunteers put the grease in BaconCamp. Are you super-organized? Help coordinate the event. Do you have pimp-ass tech skills? Be in charge of sound & projection. Love meeting people? Be a greeter at the door. Email misskarenism[at] gmail[dot]com to be on the volunteer list. All attendees are considered day-of volunteers.
- Donate money to fund the event
- Spread the word to friends, coworkers, mailing lists, etc.
- Most importantly: Come to BaconCamp with your smiling happy face.
What are the presentations all about?
Chefs and artists are given a few minutes to talk about their creation. Four or 5 people will speak every 15 minutes. This gives the speaker a chance to explain what they made, their inspiration and anything else they desire.
What are the awards?
Awards are given in these categories:
- Best Overall – This is the audience choice award. All attendees will have a chance to vote.
- Top Savory
- Top Sweet – a dessert or candy
- Top Condiment or Drink – sauces, infusions, seasonings
- Inspired – best presentation inspired by bacon. This category is for art, sculptures, photographs, demonstrations, poems, stories, music, etc.
- Inventive – most creative use of bacon. it’s unexpected and tasty
- Photogenic – when you see a picture of it, you want to lick your screen
You give a presentation (bring food or art, or demo something about bacon). A panel of judges will choose winners for some prizes. Audience choice awards will be given to presenters with the most votes from attendees, so bring your friends and convince them to vote for you.
Where’s the money go?
The San Francisco Food Bank is the beneficiary this year. Everyone who works on BaconCamp is a volunteer and does not receive any money.
I want to complain about how something sucks
1 – That’s not a question. 2 – Everyone who attends is encouraged to help make the experience better, funner, & more bacony. Each person is responsible for their own enjoyment of BaconCamp. You have the power to make positive change.
