Best Dressed Pig

June 5, 2015
Marion’s annual Livermush Festival celebrates livermush and its heritage in Marion and western North Carolina. The festival, which includes free Hunter's Livermush sandwiches, is held 6:30-9 PM in downtown Marion, just 35 miles of downtown Asheville.

Also see our Top 12 Foodie Favorites.

Our favorite is the Best Dressed Pig! Bring your most beautiful or your ugliest pig in a spectacular costume. A farmer pig, a princess pig or a Harley pig. The Best Dressed Pig gets the $25 grand prize. Other highlights include a Corn Hole Tournament and Livermush Sandwich Eating Contest. Enjoy live live music by RoadRunnerz Band (country & pop). Bring your dancing shoes!

Livermush is a Southern food product composed of pig liver, head parts, and cornmeal. It is commonly spiced with pepper and sage. Hunter's Livermush is made in Marion. Typically, it comes in a loaf, then you slice off some for a sandwich, often after it is fried (kind of like Spam). It is also used as a breakfast meat, served with eggs and grits.

For more information call 828-652-2215. In case of rain, the concert will be at the Historic Marion Tailgate Market cover, 67 West Henderson Street.
