Pig on the Ridge

The 15th annual Pig on the Ridge festival, held along the railroad in historic downtown Ridgeway, S.C., is expected to attract 70 to 75 cook teams from the Carolinas and Georgia, plus thousands of hungry visitors. Highlights include a street party along a closed section of Dogwood Drive, a shag dance on Palmer Street, children’s rides, a hog-calling contest, classic/antique car show and awards presentation. Vendors and craft booths will line the downtown streets. Visitors can also tour points of interest, including the World’s Smallest Police Station and the historic Century House, old Town Hall and former mercantile buildings now serving as offices, shops, restaurants and museums. Tickets for food on Friday night and Saturday can be purchased on site.

Pig on the Ridge began in 1999 as part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the settlement of Ridgeway. Since then, the festival has become a major fund-raising event.
