Hog Days Festival in Kewanee

By  2 Comments

Sept. 4-7, 2015, Kewanee

The festival that claims the world’s largest outdoor pork barbecue invites you to bid farewell to summer with a 96-hour celebration of good food, music, cars and carnivals.

Kewanee Hog Days serves some 30,000 people over Labor Day weekend. Enjoy free concerts, a golf tournament, disc golf, tractor pull, flea market, craft show, mud volleyball, car shows and carnival rides – just to name a few of the long list of weekend events.
Think you have what it takes to be a champion? Hog Days hosts a pork cook-off, known as The Showdown, for which the best barbecuer wins a cash prize and bragging rights.
