As they say, the fun goes beyond the food (which also includes the Corn Man, kettle corn, ice cream and more.) There will be plenty of live music on two stages, Cooking Demonstrations, Family Fun Picnic Games (including Giant Jenga, Kerplunk, and the legendary “Mechanical Pig” you can ride), even a Celebrity Bacon-Eating Contest. The grounds have plenty of room for partying, parking, and the smells alone will direct you to this tasty event. The Big Gig BBQ website has the full schedule and all the details!

Big Pig BBQ Music Schedule:

11am – 12:30 pm: Listening Party
1:30pm – 3:30pm: Idle Minds
4pm – 6pm: Saving Savannah

The Big Pig BBQ takes place on the south end of Henry Maier Festival Park, which many simply call the Summerfest Grounds. It’s along Milwaukee’s lakefront bordered by downtown, I-794, U.S. 18 and Discovery World, and the Milwaukee River as it meets Lake Michigan. Highways 32, 38, 59, and 145 also bring you with blocks. It will be a fun part of the Milwaukee Rally Labor Day weekend!
