Boston’s annual Bacon and Beer Festival is going even bigger on its sixth anniversary. Taking place this summer on June 20 in the concourse at Fenway Park,  Eat Boston’s yearly tribute to suds and swine will raise funds for The Red Sox Foundation, Community Servings, and Lovin’ Spoonfuls, and will feature plates provided by Night Market, Blackbird Donuts, Shojo, Vee Vee, and more.

Starting on Wednesday, May 27 general admission tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m., and are expected to go fast. So, to beat the crowd and ensure entry into Bacon & Beer, a highlight of the annual culinary calendar, you can purchase more expensive early bird tickets starting tonight at 7 p.m. Early bird admission includes a free Bacon and Beer Festival t-shirt, a pound of bacon, and 16 tickets redeemable for 1.5 oz samples of beer.
