Pigs and Peaches BBQ Festival

2753 Watts Drive
Kennesaw, GA 30144

​From its humble beginnings, Pigs & Peaches has grown into one of the region's most beloved festivals attracting an estimated 65,000 attendees annually.

Its roots trace back to the historic train Depot in downtown Kennesaw where in 2001, the City of Kennesaw's Parks & Recreation Department held a blues concert and barbeque cook-off for a handful of amateur grillers.

The backyard-only tradition continued until 2007 when organizers chose to elevate the experience for competitive cook teams by sanctioning the event.

In 2008, to make room for more cook teams and a few vendors eager to be part of the festivities, the event was moved to its current location at Adams Park.

​Now in its 17th year, the festival features two days of non-stop music, good eats, cold beer and interactive family-fun.​
