Louisville bacon lovers, rejoice.

This weekend, there is a whole event dedicated to your favorite pork product.

The Louisville Visual Arts Association is throwing a Bacon Ball from 6-10 p.m. Saturday at The Historic Water Tower.

Here’s a blurb about the event from Greater Louisville Inc.:

The event includes tastings of many signature bacon dishes (including Fakin’ Bacon) from local chefs, and made with locally sourced pork. To clean your palate, enjoy fine craft beer provided by BBC, and make sure to bring some cash to try out some of the beverages and spirits at the cash bar.

Want to go? Buy your tickets today — Try It Local (a Groupon-like service that focuses on local businesses), is offering a 50-percent discount on tickets. You get two tickets for $25 instead of $50. Click here for more information on the deal.

Still not convinced? Your money will go toward a good cause. Proceeds from Bacon Ball will benefit the Art Supply Fund for Jefferson County Public School students, Children’s Fine Art Classes & Open Doors programs, as well as LVAA’s newest program, Artebella Daily.

Read more about the event and the local bacon scene (including some pecan bacon peanut brittle) in the Courier-Journal.
