Bacon & Bourbon 2020 Rescheduled for May 2 at Convention Center;
Organizers Honoring Ticket Refunds for Guests Unable to Attend

CHARLESTON, SC -- Legal hurdles have been cleared, bourbon samples have been safely
stowed, and the 8th Bacon & Bourbon event has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 2 at the
North Charleston Convention Center. 

Event organizer GoCo Events elected to cancel the original event last week when, at the last
minute, state regulators denied a permit to serve alcohol. Electing to reschedule vs.
mounting a “dry” event, GoCo offered to refund any ticket holder unable to accommodate
the new date.

“We were heartbroken last week,” said Rebecca Gosnell, owner of the 22-year-old event
production company. “Our reputation in town is that we go the extra mile, and exhaust
every avenue, to achieve the magical and the impossible. Sadly, we were not able to
overcome this obstacle, this time.”

Gosnell said the original number of featured chefs and vendors will be present at the
rescheduled event. Previously ticketed guests unable to attend will receive an email in
the coming days, which will include a link for processing refunds. The formerly sold-out event
will post updates in the coming weeks on its social channels.
