This year Pig Island hopes to add more sides and vegetarian options. Think Mexican grilled corn, pickles, kimchi and salads. Yes!

Last year was the first year whiskey tasting was introduced to the program. This year is no different as whiskey will be joined by beer, ciders, wine, and mezcal.

Amongst the beverage brands coming this year are Sixpoint, Virtue Cider, Red Hook Winery, Filibuster, High West, Mezcal de Leyenda, Del Maguey, El Buho and they'll all be grouped together into pavilions.

Charitable partners for Pig Island 2016 include Just Food, Heritage Radio Network and Newark Mentoring Movement. This year our featured pig farm is Flying Pigs Farm (in Washington County) and farmer Michael Yezzi.

Pig Island was created in 2010 to support small NY pig farmers. Our mission is to create an upscale culinary event and to buy pigs and directly from NY farmers to give to chefs in a challenge to create snout-to-tail recipes at our annual fest. Tickets and updates can be found at
