TROY - On Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, the fifth annual Troy Pig Out BBQ festival will be held at the Riverfront Park in Downtown Troy.
The Troy Pig Out is back this summer for its 5th year, bringing the best BBQ the Capital Region has to offer to downtown Troy, July 13 & 14. Come party in the new Riverfront Park for two jammed packed days full of music, chef demonstrations, children's activities, and what else? Great BBQ of course!
Over 30 teams, all sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society will compete for 'Victor', life size golden pig that goes to the winners, and over $5,000 in prizes. Come out and see how the pros do it, ask them questions, and watch as they prepare their entries.
Hungry? Good. The Pig Out features BBQ vendors from across the country, smoking and grilling ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, you name it.
