Brisket getting ready to be served.

Riley Green and Brad Paisley lit-up the stage at the 2023 Tampa Pig Jig 2023. The Tampa Pig Jig started out as a backyard BBQ cook-off and is now one of the biggest and most anticipated festivals in Tampa Bay.

This highly anticipated Tampa annual fundraiser started out in 2011 and was proudly back for its 12th year. There’s no better way to spend an October Saturday night than at Julian B. Lane Park in downtown Tampa for some world class BBQ and music at the Tampa Pig Jig. This year the premier philanthropic community event welcomed some of Country Music’s biggest stars. Platinum singer/songwriter Riley green hit the stage before the Chicken Pickin’ headliner and Multi-Platinum-selling hitmaker, Brad Paisley.

The beautifully delicious smells of BBQ covered the riverfront park as dozens of BBQ pit masters lifted their tongs.

The Tampa Pig Jig is an annual fundraising event for NephCure Kidney International. The only nonprofit organization committed to funding research, improving treatment and finding a cure for the debilitating kidney disease: Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and Nephrotic Syndrome.
