PigFest 2017 Info & Volunteer Opps

The 21st Annual Lakeland PigFest is just around the corner!
 

PIGFEST 2017

The festival will take place on Friday, January 27 from 5-10 p.m. and Saturday, January 28 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Due to the renovations taking place at TigerTown, it has been moved to the Sun ‘n Fun campus, offering competitors and attendees more space to browse the area and enjoy the festivities.
 
The new site will also allow for easier parking, which will remain at $5.00 per carload. Admission will be free, but prices for food will vary by vendor.
 
The competition will heat up with the Kingsford Professional BBQ, Publix Super Markets Backyard and Badcock Kids-Q competitions.

PIGFEST COMMUNITY

What attendees may not realize is that PigFest takes hundreds of volunteers and thousands of volunteer hours to help carry out the event, and local nonprofits, such as the Learning Resource Center, partner to provide the needed amount of volunteers. PigFest then gives every dollar raised back to the community!
 
By granting the Learning Resource Center opportunities and funds based on service hours, PigFest has helped provide academic assistance and highly-qualified tutors to help students succeed and has also enabled LRC to meet the needs of students, parents and the community by aiding in the expenses of daily operation. The effect this annual barbeque festival has had on LRC reaches every aspect of the organization. Those who received any service from LRC in 2016 were impacted by its support.
 

VOLUNTEER AT PIGFEST

With that being said, LRC is seeking 2017 individuals, pairs and groups to volunteer. Volunteers are needed for shifts taking place in the judging, team breakfast and golf cart shuttling areas. Shifts are available Thursday, January 26-Saturday, January 28. To view the available shifts and to register, please click VOLUNTEER AT PIGFEST.
 
 
We look forward to seeing you there! Whether you’re a competitor, attendee or volunteer, it’s sure be a fun weekend.
