Pork out at Lafayette Village- BBQ Contest and Festival

CANCELED Saturday May 21st 2016  11 am to 4 pm  porkedout

Because of the time and effort it takes the teams to prepare for this event we had to make a tough decision early to give them as much notice as possible.  We know that each team’s safety and comfort is highly important to us, just as much so as the success of the event. So after much consideration and weather watching we feel it is in the best interest of everyone to cancel this year’s Pork Out.

One of the main purpose of this event is to raise funds for an extremely worthy cause Raleigh Rescue Mission, therefore, we are asking everyone to please consider making a donation. To do so please go to www.raleighrescue.org/donate-form/.

Unfortunately, we will not have a make-up date this year, however we still have lots to explore at Lafayette Village with unique, one-of-kind, local shops and restaurants you’ll be sure to find something for everyone!

Also be sure to check out our website www.lafayettevillageraleigh.com for more details on what’s happening at the Village.
