Pig & Whiskey 2013 is Here!

One of the best things about summer has to be all of the awesome, outdoor festivals that happen around here. Now that it's July we will soon be overwhelmed with outdoor events every weekend. This weekend is no exception. The annual Pig & Whiskey festival will be going on all weekend for its third year.
Pig & Whiskey is a festival that is definitely meant for the true pig lover. The festival features more than 10 BBQ options from around the metro Detroit area like Slows, Detroit BBQ Co. and Union Woodshop. If that isn't enough to satisfy your hunger, Treat Dreams will also be on hand serving up special flavors of their ice cream.

After you finish stuffing your face with all the BBQ you can handle, you'll need something to wash it down with. Which is why you'll need to head over to the whiskey tent! You can sample whiskeys ranging from local Valentine Distilling Co. to Jack Daniels. There is also a whiskey cocktail tent and a large beer tent with local craft beers in case you can't handle all the whiskey.

Not only will there be tons of delicious food and beverages, there will be lots of fantastic music. Some of our favorite local acts like The HandGrenades, The Muggs, The Hounds Below, Alexis and Passalacqua will be performing throughout the weekend. Friday looks like it might be one of the better lineups, but there are definitely bands to catch the whole weekend. For the full lineups for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, click here.

The festival starts Friday, July 19 at 6 p.m. and goes until midnight; Saturday 11 a.m.- midnight; and Sunday 11 a.m.- 11 p.m. Metro Times is partnering with the WAB to bring us this fun summer event and it will take place behind the WAB again this year.
