No more tickets will be available by phone or at gate. Sorry! (if you didn't get a ticket, begin crying now)
This outdoor festival is an unbridled bash filled to the brim with the 3 B's: BEER. BANDS. BACON.
It's also a fundraiser for Dad's Garage
(yes, we're a non-profit), so even if you're not in it to capture the world record for swallowing the most swine, you can rest assured that your cash is still going to a good cause.
We'll grease up the day at 1pm on Saturday, March 30th and go full boar until 6pm
that evening with four awesome local bands, hilarious carnival games manned by the best improvisers in the city, and troughs upon troughs of cold beer (from P.B.R.
) and sizzlin' bacon (from The Vortex
and D.B.A. Barbecue
). We'll also have all sorts of awesome entertainment (like a drunken spelling bee, the crowning of bacon king and queen, and more) as well as a succulent silent auction, and even two slow smoked whole hogs (from Bone Lick BBQ
) for those of you that want to put in a little extra to really pig out.
There will be an after party at P'Cheen
up the street for the little piggies that don't want to go wee wee wee all the way home at 6.
