MILWAUKEE – For the eighth straight year, Patrick Cudahy, a Smithfield Foods brand, sponsored the annual BaconFest Milwaukee on Feb. 17

Along with local radio station WHQG-FM (102.9) “The Hog”, Patrick Cudahy brought together bacon enthusiasts to the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino to enjoy new bacon creations as well as bacon classics prepared by the best local chefs and restaurants.

The company had original sweet applewood smoked bacon samples at its booth. People also took photos at the booth to share with friends and family on the Patrick Cudahy website.

“The sweet applewood smoked flavor of Patrick Cudahy is a staple of BaconFest, and we’re delighted to participate in this exciting event again this year,” said Chad McFadden, Patrick Cudahy brand manager. “As members of the community for more than 130 years, we are proud to celebrate traditions like BaconFest Milwaukee with our fans because that’s what Patrick Cudahy is all about: family, friends, fun, and most importantly – bacon.”

Anyone who stopped by the Patrick Cudahy booth had the chance to register to win Green Bay Packers autographed gear and brand items on the prize wheel. Visitors also were treated to assorted swag and coupons. Patrick Cudahy is “the official bacon” of the Packers.
