40th Annual Pig Cookin’ April 6 & 7, 2018



The USA’s Largest All Volunteer, Non-Profit, Whole Hog BBQ Pig Cookin’, invites you to join us for two days of food, fun and springtime celebrations!

Mayor Garner was one of the first to help get the Newport Pig Cookin Contest  going . It started as a fund raiser for the Newport Developmental Center to raise money for needs they had at the time.  40 years later the Pig Cookin has grown into the Largest all Volunteer  Non-Profit  Pig Cookin in the USA.  Up to this year we have given 953,000,00 dollars back to the various non-profit organizations.  Newport Pig Cookin will dedicate our 2018 Contest to Mayor Derryl Garner for all the work and dedication he has  shown all these years. We thank Mayor Garner  and will never forget all of your efforts .
