Due to the Coronavirus, the 42nd Newport Pig Cookin Contest has made the decision to CANCEL the event for this year due to the uncertainty of the Covid-19 virus and social distancing guidelines. The safety of our attendees, cooks, staff and volunteers is of utmost importance to us. Thank you for understanding!

The USA’s Largest All Volunteer, Non-Profit, Whole Hog BBQ Pig Cookin’, invites you to join us for two days of food, fun and springtime celebrations!
Mayor Garner was one of the first to help get the Newport Pig Cookin Contest going . It started as a fund raiser for the Newport Developmental Center to raise money for needs they had at the time. 41 years later the Pig Cookin has grown into the Largest all Volunteer Non-Profit Pig Cookin in the USA. In 2019 we will have given over one million dollars back to different charities.
