Hogs For the Cause is a non-profit organization that hosts an annual music and food festival to raise money for pediatric brain cancer care. Each year over 80 teams compete to be crowned the Louisiana pork champion. Attendees are invited to help choose the winners by donating to their favorite team by sampling their food. BBQ sampling is only available on Saturday. While teams battle it out on the grill, music will be playing throughout the day and into the night.
In 2013 Hogs for the Cause established the Hogs for the Cause fund at Children’s Hospital which works to support families with children with all types of cancer.
