Newport Pig Cookin’s greatest accomplishment during the 35 years of running the festival; is that over $804,980.00 has been given to various non-profit organizations! Without the support of the non-profit groups the festival could not continue with their Hometown Southern Charm serving the best BBQ on the Eastern Coast.
