Lakeland PigFest takes place on Friday and Saturday, January 26 – 27, 2024 at SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus in Lakeland. This festival is the area’s largest barbecue competition and admission is only $5, with free parking.


Attendees to PigFest exchange cash for “Pig Bucks”, the official currency of the Lakeland PigFest, to purchase food.

Through the continued support of the local community, the event has been able to donate over one million dollars of unrestricted funds to local charities since its humble beginnings in 1997.
