Who can resist the allure of a delectable BBQ? The Tampa Pig Jig stands as the quintessential autumn culinary festival throughout the entire Tampa Bay region. This exceptional event is slated to unfold at Julian B Lane Riverfront Park on October 21, running from 1 pm to 10 pm. An impressive lineup of talented bands will join forces with a host of skilled chefs for a day devoted to a noble cause.
Notably, the Tampa Pig Jig was established by the Old Florida Federation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created by a group of friends from the Tampa area.
This year, the heart of Tampa will resound with performances by Brad Paisley, Shovels & Rope, The Head and The Heart, Amanda Shires, and Riley Green. Tickets are currently on sale and can be acquired through the Tampa Pig Jig’s official website.
Every autumn, the Tampa Pig Jig delivers an extraordinary blend of live music, mouthwatering cuisine, frosty beverages, and a competitive corporate barbecue showdown along the picturesque waterfront of downtown Tampa. Yet, it’s more than just a fantastic time; the Tampa Pig Jig stands as a philanthropic endeavor, raising funds for NephCure Kidney International, the sole nonprofit organization committed to advancing research, enhancing treatment, and ultimately discovering a cure for the debilitating kidney disorders, Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and Nephrotic Syndrome.
