The Festival

In 12 years, Hogs for the Cause has grown from one pig helping one family to one of the most highly acclaimed barbecue and music festivals in the country with over 30K people in attendance. The funds from our two-day music festival and barbecue competition, combining over 20 bands and over 90 competing barbecue teams, allow the organization to help thousands of families through direct grants and funding programming at children’s hospitals across the United States.
