Hot off the grill and Hot of the stage, that’s the way you’ll find the pork dishes and entertainment at the annual Virginia Pork Festival. The Virginia Pork Festival is one of the East Coast’s largest food festivals.

The Virginia Pork Festival has for decades combined outstanding pork dishes with continuous live music, from five stages, to make this an event not to be missed. Like the outstanding food, this year’s music line up is nothing short of fantastic. Live entertainment at this year’s festival will include the Embers, Strictly Bizzness, Soul Expressions, & The Feature Attraction Band. Come out and see all of them!

Although the primary goal of the Virginia Pork Festival is to promote the pork industry, the festival is a nonprofit organization that provides local clubs and civic organizations with an opportunity to raise funds for their respective groups. Over the past four decades, over one million dollars and counting has been donated to: Hospice, Shriners, The American Red Cross, area civic, rescue and fire departments, and many others. It should be noted that all dishes are prepared and served by these groups, all of whom make the festival a great success for the local communities.

The delicious Pork, the surging wave of live music from four jolting stages sets the beaming and jubilant mood for this well anticipated Pork Festival. Over 30 different Pork Dishes, Side Dishes and Beverages will be served up on the Greensville Ruritan Club Grounds in Emporia, VA on Wednesday June 8th to an expected gathering of 15,000 festival patrons . This “Bring Your Lawn Chair, Grab a Plate and Enjoy the Music” festival is custom made for folks yearning for an comforting and satisfying mid-week afternoon off from the rigors of a busy work week. For 43 years, The Virginia Pork Festival has been a “Must Go” Destination. After your first visit, we feel the festival will be a “Must Go” event, year after year, for you too. The Virginia Pork Festival is one spectacular afternoon and can be summed up with these simple terms.

EAT. DRINK. LIVE MUSIC.
