Sam Hunt and Kip Moore really stole the show at the 2022 Tampa Pig Jig. What started in a backyard has now grown to one of the biggest and most anticipated festivals in Tampa Bay.

One of Tampa’s favorite annual fundraiser events is back for its 11th year. It was a beautiful October Saturday for Tampa Pig Jig to take over Julian B. Lane Park in Downtown Tampa. This year the premier philanthropic community event welcomed some of QYK favorite artists. Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Kip Moore joined the lineup with headliner multi-Platinum-selling, award-winning hitmaker Sam Hunt.

Talented BBQ pit masters were spread over all around the riverfront park. Filling the area the the smells of some delicious BBQ flavors.

Country music started to take over the day as Kip Moore took the stage with some of his hits like “Fire And Flame,”Wild Ones,” and “Beer Money.” We even got to hear a “Purple Rain” cover. Kip was looking great during Tampa’s golden hour. He was rocking a bad boy look of all-black tank top and jeans, but we know the Morning Krewe was kinda hoping he wore this.

After the infamous BBQ awards were handed out, Sam Hunt took the stage in a traditional Mickey Mouse/Florida t-shirt.

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.
