Event Day

Pig Out in the Park: A Backyard BBQ Bash is to be held on Saturday, August 17, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm, at Hoffman Hollow Park located at 11200 Hoffman Hollow Road, Frostburg, MD 21532. It will be a  fun-filled day of live music, a beer tent, a pie-eating contest, kid zone, local artist vendors, and a backyard BBQ competition!


Pig Out in the Park, a Kansas Barbecue Society sanctioned backyard BBQ competition, offers local and non-local BBQ competition teams the chance to go down in Backyard BBQ history! Last year winners received over $1,500 in cash prizes! This year we are adding the people’s-choice competition category and will let the crowd decide who’s BBQ reigns supreme!


In addition to the heat of the competition Pig Out will feature mechanical bull riding, a chainsaw carving demonstration, and food vendors from the Frostburg area. Three bands will be playing live music all day including Savage Road and Day Old News.


All proceeds from Pig Out in the Park go to FrostburgFirst: A Maryland Main Street Community and their efforts towards downtown revitalization, promoting small business, engaging the community, and making Frostburg a beautiful and thriving city to live, work, and visit.


Pig Out in the Park will be accepting applications for vendors and competitors through July 15th. Tickets are $8 for general admission online, or $12 with a barbecue tasting kit. They will be $10 for general admission and $15 with the tasting kit at the door. Children under 12 get in for free.
