Hog Day 2023

September 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Orange County Optimist Club invites you to HOG DAY 2023! A family festival of fun in downtown Hillsborough in beautiful River Park.

The festival has been running since 1983 and raises funds for youth programs and services throughout the county. As the county’s largest and oldest event, we feature a BBQ contest, arts and craft vendors, car show, children’s area and much more in historic downtown Hillsborough. Held in mid-September, we have been featured year after year as one of the top events in the southeast and the country. We encourage you to come and visit, inquire about being a vendor, and explore our downtown.

The highlight of the festival is the BBQ. Veteran cooking teams will be competing for top honors.

Our festival includes:

  • Live music
  • Local handmade crafts & gifts
  • Local food and drink vendors
  • Hog Day 5K
  • Classic Car Show
  • Pigs on Parade
  • Children’s Area
  • …and more!
