Tampa Pig Jig started six years ago as an intimate backyard barbecue competition among friends. Today, it’s one of Tampa’s signature events with more than 7,000 barbecue and music fans converging at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.
To date, Pig Jig has raised more than $1M for NephCure Kidney International, a nonprofit committed to finding a cure for two debilitating kidney diseases – FSGS (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) and nephrotic syndrome.
Rock band O.A.R. headlines this year’s event on Saturday, Oct. 22. For $40, enjoy live music and games while 50 amateur barbecue teams battle for awards and bragging rights.
