The Board of Directors of the Lakeland PigFest have officially announced that they are postponing the 2021 event. With careful consideration for the success of the event, now in its 25th year, the Board has decided to move the festival to May 14-15 at the Sun ‘N Fun Expo Campus in Lakeland.
Each year, the Learning Resource Center partners with PigFest, providing volunteers to assist. In return, LRC earns funds based on the amount of service hours that LRC staff, board members and community volunteers provide.
LRC’s gratitude overflows for the many volunteers who have dedicated their time to help fill 100+ shifts each year that inlcude duties in the judging area (ages +16), with golf cart shuttles (ages 18+ with valid driver’s license) and at the VIP Party (ages 21+).
This continues to be a great opportunity for both individuals and groups to give back in a fun way while experiencing a popular festival as well as an excellent chance for students (16+) to acquire service hours.

LRC’s shifts will take place Wednesday, May 12-Saturday, May 15, 2021. Be sure to mark these dates on your calendar!
