Porkopolis Pig & Whiskey Festival

Due to weather concerns, Porkopolis Pig & Whiskey has been postponed. The new date for the event is 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1.


People say there’s nothing quite as American as apple pie, but it could be argued that the national cuisine of the good ole U.S. of A. is barbecue. This weekend, CityBeat is partnering with Horseshoe Casino to bring the city’s best barbecue to one place for a day of pork, beer and whiskey at the inaugural Porkopolis Pig & Whiskey Festival. Restaurants, including Eli’s, Velvet Smoke and Huit Craft BBQ, will be featured, along with more than 30 varieties of bourbon, scotch and whiskey, with master distillers and a whiskey chatter area for education and sampling. Live Bluegrass and Americana bands play at the top of every hour, with headliners Swear and Shake at 8 p.m.


11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Saturday. Free; food and liquor prices vary. The Shoe, Horseshoe Casino, 1000 Broadway, Pendleton, citybeat.xorbia.com/pigandwhiskey
