Saturday will be sizzling at the Indiana Theatre, and it's all thanks to bacon!

Hope you're hungry because it's the inaugural bacon fest.

Local restaurants and amateur chefs are stepping up to the plate, sampling their bacon creations.

Judges will award "Best of Bacon" and you can vote for community favorite.

Bacon fest is the first ever fundraiser for Terre Haute Ministries, and organizers hope it'll help them help even more.

"And we wanted it to be literally a fun fundraiser. And I personally believe everything is better with bacon," said Honnalora Hubbard, executive director of Terre Haute Ministries. "It's bacon in breakfast, bacon in lunch, bacon in dinner, bacon in snacks. I mean there's never a time that's not good for bacon! And so you have savory bacon, sweet bacon, bacon hors d'oeuvres. We have bacon everything. So if you love bacon, this is the spot."

Bacon Fest is this Saturday, March 15 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

It's at the Indiana Theatre on 7th and Ohio.

You can get tickets at the door for $10.
