After 31 years, the Hillsborough/ Orange County Chamber of Commerce has decided to pass the Hog Day festival over to a group of veteran volunteers with the Orange County Optimist Club . These volunteers have organized a Hog Day Committee to continue this tradition and use the profits to offer back as community grants to local children's projects, programs and nonprofits.  Some of the organizations our proceeds have supported include: Efland Ruritan Club, Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, Hillsborough Moose Lodge, Hillsborough Exchange Club, Orange County Social Services Christmas Child Program and many more....

We are excited about this years coming Hog Day and the many great new changes.  We're happy to announce that the Hillsborough BBQ Company is this years title sponsor and that we're moving the event back to downtown Hillsborough as well as pushing it back to September during a cooler time of year.  Consider joining our team as a volunteer.  Visit the Orange County Optimist Club online at 


(Hog Day is located at River Park in Downtown Hillsborough at 144 East Margaret Lane, Hillsborough NC 27278)
