Grilling at it’s Finest!

As the Marketing Director of the New Orleans Guest House, I have had the privilege of witnessing countless events that capture the vibrant spirit of our city. However, there is one event that holds a special place in my heart, and I am thrilled to share it with you. This weekend, April 5-6, 2024, New Orleans will once again play host to the much-anticipated Hogs For The Cause at the picturesque UNO Lakefront Festival Grounds, located at 6801 Franklin Ave. This event is not just a feast for the senses but a powerful gathering that embodies the soul of our community.

A Culinary Experience Like No Other

Hogs For The Cause is more than just a barbecue contest; it’s a culinary extravaganza that brings together over 95 teams, each with their unique twist on pork, ribs, bacon, wings, and everything pork-related you can imagine. Imagine the air filled with the mouthwatering aroma of barbecued delights, the sizzle of grills, and the enthusiastic chatter of fellow food enthusiasts. As we celebrate the 16th annual anniversary of this beloved event, it’s a testament to the enduring appeal and growing popularity of this unique gathering.

Music to Your Ears

Complementing the delectable food is a lineup of over 20 bands set to entertain the crowds with their vibrant rhythms and melodies. From soulful jazz to electrifying rock, the music scene at Hogs For The Cause is as diverse and rich as the culinary offerings. It’s a beautiful sight to see people come together, swaying to the music, sharing a meal, and basking in the joyous atmosphere that only New Orleans can provide.

A Cause Close to Our Hearts

What truly sets Hogs For The Cause apart is its noble mission. Over the years, this event has raised over 11 million dollars to support families fighting pediatric cancer. Each bite, each note of music, and every smile contributes to this fantastic cause, providing hope and support to those in need. It’s a reminder of the power of community and the impact we can make when we come together for a common purpose.
