Come be a part of the 2018 Jiggy With the Piggy Festival on May 4 & 5 in Kannapolis! 

This event is incredibly popular in the area, remember last year's BBG winners from our article, "
Results Are In for Kannapolis' 2017 Jiggy with the Piggy BBQ Competition"? It's a fun event that the community rallies behind.

According to the City of Kannapolis' website, "We need volunteers to help with the BBQ competition, 5k Walk/Run, arts & craft vendors, concerts, family movie and more! The festival needs over 200 people to run smoothly and you can be a part of the excitement!"

Jiggy with the Piggy brings 70 BBQ competitors from across the U.S., over 100 arts & crafts vendors, a Zucchini 600 race, and a People's Choice wings and pork tasting.

The signature concert Friday night will be The New Familiars. Other bands performing during Jiggy include the Flash Back Party Band, Stepside Deluxe and the Bill Miller Band.
