Everything You Need to Know about Pig & Whiskey 2018

This weekend Ferndale's Pig & Whiskey Festival will return to the alley in-between the WAB and The Emory for the 9th year in the row. The three day festival features bbq, booze, and live music. It's also a charity fundraiser for some of our favorite local non-profits, including Suck It Suicide and Girls Rock Detroit. This year event will expand to include a top shelf tent and more booze and barbecue than ever before!

This year's festival will include food from a variety of vendors, including Detroit BBQ Company, Slows BBQ, Mac Shack, El Guapo, Alley Taco, Treat Dreams, Joebar, and more. They will be serving up sips of lots of different liquors, including Ann Arbor Distilling Co., Bulleit Bourbon, Jack Daniels, Old Forester, Rebel Yell, Wild Turkey, and many more. They will also have live music all weekend, including performances from The Messenger Birds, Bearvs Shark, Pokey LaFarge, Ben Keeler Band, Laith Al-Saadi, Electric Six, Ancient Language, The Beggars, Kimball, and more.

The festival will also have three new features this year. The top shelf tent is an exclusive drinking area featuring tastes of things like Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Glendronach, Buffalo Trace, Blantons, Four Roses, and more. There will also be a cocktail corner that will feature rotating cocktails from some of the area's best bars. This includes cocktails from bars like The Peterboro, Grey Ghost, Public House, Wright & Company, and more. Finally, this year the festival became even more dog friendly by featuring two Titos drinking lounges where dogs and their owners can drink together in harmony! 

The festival will run from 6 p.m. until midnight on Friday, 11 a.m. until midnight on Saturday, and 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Sunday. It is free for all ages to attend the festival and all of the tips that you leave will go to some of our favorite local charities, so tip often and tip heavily.

Don't forget, there are Pig & Whiskey after parties all three nights over at The Loving Touch. These events feature performances by some of the city's grittier bands, including Tart, The Dropout, and Kommander
