Hogfest is an annual barbeque celebrated in Englefeld, Saskatchewan. Whole pigs are roasted on spits for an entire day and then served for supper on Saturday night.
The event attracts a crowd of about eight hundred people. In a town populated by less than three hundred, that's quite an event!

My dad fixed pit roasted pig for the harvest crew and their families at the end of harvest. Always a good time and good eats.ReplyDelete
A client of a company that I once worked for would slow roast wild boar for over ten hours. Delicious!Delete
Beautiful field of yellow. Hogfest sounds good!ReplyDelete
1200 miles up to a part of the world I've never been before and 43 days until Hogfest 49!ReplyDelete
I wonder if the border will be open by the 26th of June? I'll bet the snow will be gone..

Unfortunately most of these celebrations have been cancelled for 2020. Phone first.Delete
I have heard that Canada and the USA may jointly decide to extend the border closure to June 21/20.Delete
They roasts pigs underground in a pit for Hawaiian luaus. Very tasty. I can understand why Hogfest would be so popular. We have a similar event in Edmonton called, I believe, Pork Fest.ReplyDelete
I am hoping that one of you will have the presence of mind to cover the great CFCW Chicken Races this year...? I must say, your glaring lack of coverage of this important Albertan event in the past has been most disappointing...ReplyDelete
