Yale Bologna Festival 2013
The Royal Treatment of America's Most Underestimated Meat! Every summer, Yale transforms from a tranquil town to the epicenter of Bologna fandom. Our Yale Bologna Festival poster pays homage to the "King of Meats," elevating bologna from lunchbox staple to royal delicacy. Through whimsical visuals and a clever tagline "More Bologna, Less Boloney," we celebrate Yale's century-old legacy in bologna craftsmanship, igniting curiosity and drawing throngs to this can't-miss event.
