The Bacon and Beer Classic will take place on April 29 and 30 this year.

It’s that time of year again: your chance to try an endless supply of bacon and beer at the ballpark.

The Bacon and Beer Classic at Citi Field will take place on April 29 and April 30; more than 40 restaurants and more than 100 craft beers will be available to sample.

Participating restaurants include Delaney Barbecue, Salt & Bone, Blue Smoke, Bareburger, Schmackary’s Cookies and Bar Bacon. Attendees will be able to wash down the bacon with beer from Big Alice Brewing, Black Hog Brewing, Bronx Brewery, Brooklyn Brew Shop, Coney Island Brewing, Fire Island Beer Co, Staten Island Beer Company and more.

In addition to the unlimited bacon and beer, the event will also include a chance for attendees to participate in a virtual reality experience that will launch you into a “tantalizing bacon universe” where you can purchase Black Label bacon.

At the bacon eating contest, the first place winner will receive a year’s worth of free bacon and the second place winner will take home a Duff Goldman gift basket from Tylina Foods.

There are three types of tickets available: General Admission, Power Hour or VIP. Tickets range in price depending on sessions, which are split up into afternoon and evening.

General Admission tickets are selling for $69; VIP tickets are selling for $129; and Power Hour Tickets are going for $99. VIP and Power Hour ticket holders will enter the stadium an hour early through an exclusive line and VIP ticket holders will have have access to exclusive dishes, beer cocktails, a pork belly station and a BLT bar.

All tickets include a commemorative tasting glass and access to the Bacon and Beer Classic mobile app, which includes vendor information, special partner discounts, a stadium map and more.
