With over 13,000 attendees, 100 craft beers to try, and a plethora of delicious bacon treats, the national touring Bacon and Beer Classic has become one of the most popular food and drink festivals in the US. The wildly popular food festival is hosted by New York City based, large scale event planning company, Cannonball Productions.

After studying journalism and sociology in college, entrepreneur Kate Levenstien shortly discovered that she had a whole different passion - event planning. This soon sparked an idea, and at the young age of 26, Levenstein started her own successful event planning company, Cannonball Productions.

As a young company, they are about to celebrate their third anniversary. Below, take a tour of their New York City office and see Levenstein in action.
