Dine on swine from noon to 7:00 PM on Saturday.
You still have a few days to enjoy the deep-fried, artery-clogging goodness of the State Fair (defibrillator sold separately), but there’s also a lot of other food-centric events around town this weekend to sink your teeth into. Hogtober takes place this Saturday at Libby Hill Park, featuring barbecue (from Alamo BBQ, Buz & Ned’s, and The Halligan Bar & Grill) and beer o’plenty. Down the hill near Monroe Park and Jackson Ward, respectively, the International Food Festival takes place at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, and don’t miss out on the delicious soul food of the 2nd Street Festival, either.

Barbecue behemoths Alamo BBQ, Buz & Ned’s, and Halligan’s will showcase some good ole’ BBQ in the style of Carolina, Memphis, and Texas. Bring the kids for face painting, balloon art, crafts, pig skin ring toss, and more.
