Silicon Valley Pig Jig

Bringing the best of the south to the South Bay!

The Silicon Valley Pig Jig (SVPJ) is a community event where people will enjoy music, food, family friendly activities and games in a tailgate like environment while benefiting NephCure Kidney International.

Modeled after the successful Tampa Pig Jig, the goal of the SVPJ is to bring the community together in a new and different type of event in San Jose.  The SVPJ will be an entertaining and lively event that will attract people of all ages while benefiting NephCure Kidney International, the only organization committed to finding the cause and cure for Nephrotic Syndrome (NS) and Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS).

BBQ Teams will compete in “The Pit” to win trophies and bragging rights where a grand overall champion will be named. While the BBQ teams are ‘cueing up a cure, family friendly activities including games, fun zone, raffles, various vendors, live music from local bands, delicious food and drinks will keep the guests entertained.

The Silicon Valley Pig Jig will take place on October 6th at the San Jose Municipal Stadium, home of the San Jose Giants – we hope to see you there!

Thank you to our partners and sponsors
