New Orleans, LA 70122

Kick off festival season right … with music, barbecue and community! Hogs for the Cause returns as the largest BBQ and Music festival in the Country, all wrapped up in one Amazing cause! New Orleans welcomes 85 local and regional BBQ masters and the best backyard chefs to compete in seven categories: Whole Hog, Ribs, Pork ****/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.
