20th Annual Pigtown Festival

On October 8, 2022 from 12-7 p.m., Pigtown Main Street will present the 20th Annual Pigtown Festival, a family-friendly event celebrating the character and history of one of Baltimore’s most unique neighborhoods. Thousands will visit our funky neighborhood to experience another spectacular festival while dancing to live music, enjoying food and drink, and browsing arts and crafts tables. Families will enjoy an amazing KidZone, with hat making, baseball throwing, and cheer on their favorite pig at the iconic “Squeakness” pig races.

“This is our 20th Annual Pigtown Festival! We’re working hard to make it the best yet!”  said Daniel Khoshkepazi, Main Street Manager at Pigtown Main Street. Our food trucks and vendors will sell some of Baltimore’s best eats, and our beer tent will sell festival staple drinks, including beer, wine and THE ONE AND ONLY Pigtown Crushes!!!

Highlighted activities:

  • Live music! Groove to  Rufus Roundtree & Da B’More Brass Factory, Tony Waddy’s Hot Mess and Joe Keyes and the Late Bloomers!
  • Squeakness: Baltimore’s only Pig Races returns!
  • Food connoisseurs will get the chance to compete in our Pie Eating Contest featuring pies from Culinary Architecture!
