The smell of bar-b-que and the sound of great music drifted through the streets of downtown Tampa as thousands gathered at Curtis Hixon Park to celebrate the 6th Annual Tampa Bay Pig Jig. The event is Tampa Bay’s largest bar-b-que competition. Teams from all over the Tampa/St. Petersburg area gather to compete for coveted bar-b-que titles such as Best Ribs, Best Brisket and even Best Butt (no, not that kind of butt!). The event also crowns overall third and second place winners, as well as a Grand Champion.
The event benefits NephCure Kidney International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis and Nephrotic Syndrome. Over the past six years, the Pig Jig event has raised more than $1,200,000.
Levy Recognition was once again honored to create the trophies and plaques for the Pig Jig event. We have been involved since the very first event and every year, we are excited to see which teams take home the awards.
