One of our favorite aspects of Hog Day is our “Pigs on Parade” art project. This project plays homage to our old-time best dressed pig contest that the Hog Day Festival ran for over two decades.

Instead of live pigs, we now have life-sized pig statues for families and local businesses to buy or rent and decorate. All of the pigs are displayed weeks before Hog Day for fun and to advertise the event.

The day of Hog Day all the pigs are displayed at the event and attendees get to vote on their favorite decorated pig. As you can see from the photos of past designs, our participants have great ideas and amazing work.

This year's pig is a wonderful standing pig and we can’t wait to see the designs roll in. To rent a pig this year is $350 and to buy it is $500. If you buy the pig, you can redesign it and enter it in the contest every year. If you rent it, we'll get it back from you at the end of the year to rent to someone else next year.
