Top Southern Barbecue Festival Returns in November

Top Southern Barbecue Festival Returns in November

One of the South's gems lies within the  event Vienna, Ga. awaits all year. Mouths begin to water before even arriving on the event grounds: one of Georgia's largest barbecue events is near.

Since 1982, the Big Pig Jig brings folks of all kinds for one thing everyone has in common: the love for food. 

This year, the annual event is set for November 1-3. What started off as a bet on who could make the best pig became what is now a barbecue contest, festival, and arts and crafts fair all rolled into one.

Named one of the Top 500 Festivals and Most Extraordinary Events by Travel Agent Magazine and Tom Clynes, author of "WILD PLANET!" respectively, the event in South Georgia has even drawn Discovery Channel to list it among the Top 10 in Barbecue Contests.

According to the Big Pig Jig website, the festival has had such success that Dooly County Chamber gave out over $16K in prizes in 2010.

The full schedule has not been announced yet.
