April Events in North Carolina
Mark your calendars for these fun events happening across the state in April:
Pig Cookin’ Contest
Newport, April 9-10, 2021
Go hog wild this April in Newport, when it celebrates the 41st anniversary of one of the largest whole hog, pig-cooking competitions in the country. Each year, more than 60 cooks enter this Coastal Carolina cook-off with hopes of winning the title of perfect pig.
The contest, which began in 1978 to raise funds for a local school, has continued the tradition of giving back to the local community and has even been dubbed the nation’s largest all-volunteer nonprofit whole-hog contest.
