Country Music Superstar Craig Morgan will help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary with a free concert on Friday, May 3, on the North Carolina Research Campus Horseshoe. Following the concert, stay for the exciting Drone Show.

Hundreds of drones will create a mesmerizing display in the nighttime sky to honor the City and the Jiggy Festival. 

Jiggy is one of the largest sanctioned events by the Kansas City Barbeque Society and once again we will host over 70 barbeque competition teams who compete for top bragging rights and prize money.

The festival, which has been named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society, will have more than 100 arts & crafts vendors, concerts, a 5K walk/run, fireworks and a People’s Choice pork tasting competition and an exciting kid’s zone.

We will host over 70 barbeque competition teams from across the U.S. to compete for top bragging rights and prize money. Jiggy continues to be one of the largest sanctioned events by the Kansas City Barbeque Society in the United States. 

Each year, you can taste the competing team’s cooking expertise by purchasing a $10 ticket for the People’s Choice Pork Tasting Contest. You will receive ten samples of pork and then cast your vote for the best one.

Kannapolis Firefighter’s Association will once again brought their cooking skills to the festival while selling barbeque to the public. We also added more barbeque and food vendors so you can fill up on many varieties of yummy festival food. 

As always, this festival is free to the public. No pets or smoking please.
