The second annual Pig and Whiskey event will return to downtown Ferndale this weekend where residents can enjoy BBQ, whiskey sampling and outdoor entertainment.
Metro Times is partnering with Woodward Avenue Brewers for the event, which will close E. Troy Street. The event aims to showcase the area's best barbecue restaurants, highlight unique and delicious pork, beef and barbecue dishes, and offer samples of bourbon, scotch, and whiskey brands. A beer tent will also be available.
The event is free and open to all ages. Check out a full photo gallery here from last year's Pig and Whiskey event.
