Mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 19, for Tampa Pig Jig, a daylong festival in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park with good eats, an amateur barbecue competition, craft beers and games. This year, country star Jake Owen headlines the festival, and indie rockers Dr. Dog and country band Lanco will also take the stage.
It’s a fun event – and it’s raised more than $4 million for NephCure Kidney International over the past eight years to help find a cure for the rare and debilitating FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) and Nephrotic Syndrome.
Register to volunteer or purchase tickets, which start at $25.
