On June 21, 2014 the Apex Sunrise Rotary Club will bring the 3rd Annual Peak City Pig Fest to

Historic Downtown Apex North Carolina.

This free, family friendly event is expected to attract

more than 20,000 visitors to N. Salem Street.


The 3rd Annual Peak City Pig Fest is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS), the nation’s leading BBQ sanctioning body. Cook teams from all over the country will come to compete against each other for prize money cooking chicken, ribs, beef brisket and pork.

Judging will be conducted by KCBS certified BBQ judges (CBJ) using KCBS rules. We expect 48 professional BBQ cook teams to enter and compete for a total of $10,000 in prize money. This is the only KCBS-sanctioned event in the Triangle.

The 3rd Annual Peak City Pig Fest will raise funds to support the community through the various causes supported by the Apex Sunrise Rotary Foundation. These include Western Wake Crisis Ministry, a collection of church and local businesses whose mission is to provide a helping hand to the Apex & Holly Springs (NC) community – in the form of food or crisis financial aid – to those in the community whose ability to sustain independent living is threatened by unexpected circumstances: illness, car or home repairs, decrease in wages, etc. Funds will also go to support Operation Coming Home, which builds homes for disabled veterans. Operation Coming Home will complete their 7th home in April, 2014.

Per Apex city ordinance, no dogs are allowed
