In its early years (early 1900s), the City of San Benito hosted a festive parade for the townspeople and called it the Cabbage Day Parade. One year, the parade featured a Hog Waddle - a hog parade spectacle of 2,000 hogs; which filled the streets for four blocks. The snort march down San Benito's main road ended in a hog dash when someone fired a celebratory shot from a pistol into the air resulting in the hogs scattering in all directions. It took three days to round-up the hogs, making the
Hog Waddle but a good old memory in San Benito's history book.
Join us for the First Annual Hog Waddle Country Concert & Cook-Off for a day of food & craft vendors, games & family activities, cold beverages, and an evening concert under the stars with the best country music in Texas!
EARLY BIRD PARKING AND VIP TICKET SALES WILL BE AVAILABLE STARTING APRIL 2ND.
