The Peak City Pig Fest is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, the nation's leading BBQ sanctioning body. This year 48 cook teams will compete for more than $12,000 in prize money as they cook chicken, ribs, beef brisket and pork.
Beside the barbecue, the festival also features music, a beer garden, street vendors and pig races. The Apex Sunrise Rotary sponsors the festival with proceeds going to Western Wake Crisis Ministry.
The Peak City Pig Fest takes place in downtown Apex on Friday from 5pm - 11pm and Saturday from 9am - 8pm.
