The Troy Pig Out will welcome professional BBQ teams from across the United States for this two day competition which includes a People's Choice St. Louis Rib competition on Saturday, and the main event on Sunday.

Barbeque vendors and live music are the main attractions for guests to the festival, filling Riverfront Park on both Saturday and Sunday, and a special fireworks show on Saturday night over the Hudson River.

The Troy Pig Out is officially sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Association and the office of the Governor as the New York State BBQ Championship, qualifying the winner for the National Championship.
