Pregame Festivals

Pig Pickin'

What is the Pig Pickin'?

A Pig Pickin' is a Southern tradition and in 2012, the RailHawks introduced their Pregame Pig Pickin' Festival to Triangle area fans.  The pregame festival takes place outside the stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park just prior to a Carolina RailHawks home match.  The Pig Pickin' Festival is a combination of BBQ, Beer, and Live Music.  The BBQ contest pits amatuer cooks up against local pitmasters and a fan vote determines who has the best pig and leaves with the Pig Pickin' Festival crown.
