Silicon Valley Pig Jig (SVPJ) will be bringing the best of the south to the South Bay. The purpose of SVPJ is to host a community event where people will enjoy music, food, family friendly activities and games in a tailgate type of environment while benefiting NephCure Kidney International.

BBQ Teams will be in “The Pit” where they will compete in four categories: tri-tip, ribs,  wildcard and best overall. Teams will compete to win trophies and bragging rights where a grand overall champion will be named. While the BBQ teams are ‘cueing up a cure, there will be family friendly activities including games, a fun zone, raffles, various vendors, live music from local bands, delicious food and drinks.

The goal of the SVPJ is to bring the community together in a new and different type of community event in San Jose. Modeled after the very successful Tampa Pig Jig, 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).

The SVPJ will take place on October 6th at San Jose Municipal Stadium while college football is in full swing and will bear a college football tailgate culture and atmosphere. Continue to follow the Silicon Valley Pig Jig website for more details!
