NEAR WEST SIDE — The lineup for Baconfest Chicago 2014 is in.

More than 150 restaurants — including Honey Butter Fried Chicken, Black Dog Gelato, Endgrain, Glazed and Infused, and Lillie's Q — will hawk bacon-themed treats and products at the event, held April 25-26 at the UIC Forum.

General admission tickets for $100 go on sale Feb. 24. This year, the fest will have three sessions held over the two days. General admission tickets give fest-goers access to all bacon food and products at the event, in addition to drink tickets redeemable for beer, wine, and cocktails and a reusable Baconfest tote bag.

For more serious bacon consumers, $200 VIP tickets are already on sale. VIP ticket holders receive early access to the festival during the Cooking Channel VIP hours, an hour prior to each general admission period.
