On Saturday, Nov. 5, the Rotary Clubs of Greensboro organization is putting on “Pigstock 2022,” which is described as “A Day of BBQ and Bluegrass.”

It won’t have all of the worldwide legendary names that the original Woodstock concert did – but it will have lots of great music and great food all for an excellent cause.

It will be held at Shooting Star Horse Farm at 5624 Davis Mill Road in Greensboro.

This Pigstock is an anniversary of sorts:  It’s the 10th annual event featuring the

“hotly contested” barbecue competition for the Boss Hawg Championship Trophy.

Event promoters are promising “some of the best wood smoked pork, ribs, brisket, and chicken, along with a wide variety of sides, desserts, beer, and wine – all you can eat and drink.”

Live bluegrass music will be provided by three bands: Never Too Late, Hot Wax & The Splinters, and Briar Patch.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their instruments as well for some open jam sessions with the bands on breaks.

All proceeds from the event go to support the Children of Vietnam organization, which, among other things, helps fund college educations for underprivileged Vietnamese youth.        More info is available at pigstockbbq.com.

Tickets for all-you-can-eat food with tea and water or food, beer, and wine are $35 or $45, while children under 12 get in free with one paying adult.

Tickets will be sold at the event or they can be purchased in advance online at:
