46th Annual Pig Cooking Contest

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 fundraiser for the Newport Developmental Center to raise money for needs they had at the time. 46 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.
