The annual Troy Pig Out returns to Troy’s Riverfront Park on Saturday and Sunday (July 19 & 20), with professional BBQ teams from across the United States and Canada descending on the Collar City for the two-day weekend competition, which includes a People’s Choice St. Louis Rib competition. In addition, there will be lots of other food vendors, too.

And of course, there will be plenty of live music going on both days to accompany your pig-product sampling, headlined by Saratoga rockers Wild Adriatic. You’ll have to pay for your ribs, but the music is free. The event, which also benefits the Northeast Kidney Foundation, will also feature a fireworks display.

Here’s the schedule of free musical performances for the 2014 Troy Pig Out:
