Slosheye Trail Big Pig Jig

Georgia designated The Slosheye Trail Big Pig Jig in Vienna as the official state pork barbecue championship cook-off in 1997. Sponsored by the Dooly county Chamber of Commerce, this competition becomes bigger every year and is one of the most highly anticipated festivals in the state of Georgia. The Big Pig Jig is held early November in Vienna, Georgia (350 Pig Jig Boulevard).

In addition to the pork barbecue championship cookoff, there is a stew and sauce contest, a parade, arts and crafts booths, a costume contest, musical performances, livestock shows, hog calling contest, special children's activities, and more.
