Hogs for the Cause

March 27-28, 2020 | UNO Lakefront Arena

New Orleans welcomes 85 local and regional BBQ masters and the best backyard chefs to compete in seven categories: Whole Hog, Ribs, Pork Butt/Shoulder, Porkpourri, Sauce, Fan Favorite, and Fundraising Champion. Our barbecue festival is a two-day event full of music, local beer, and fundraising. Both New Orleans musicians and national musical acts will keep you dancing all weekend long to whet your appetite to try every food option from Alabama white sauce to cracklin cochon de lait nachos. On Friday night, we celebrate glorious bacon at Bacon Night, while Saturday is the main event. Join us for the tastiest BBQ festival in New Orleans!
