We have waited and waited, but now the wait is over and the Hogs for the Cause XIII will take place on June 4-5, 2021, in Belle Chasse! If you are as excited as we are for this amazing festival, don’t worry there is still time to get your tickets. Everyone who has ever been to this event knows they have great barbecue – 75 competing barbecue teams to be exact. But, did you know they also will have 20 contemporary bands?
Hogs for the Cause is a 501c(3) organization that unites barbecue culture nationwide to provide aid to families while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer. Year-round efforts culminate in an annual two-day music festival and barbecue competition, combining over 20 contemporary bands with over 75 competing barbecue teams. Currently, Hogs for the Cause operates as the premier funding source for the cause and has given over 1,000 direct grants to families in need and has made financial contributions to children’s hospitals in New Orleans, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Atlanta. ~ Website
