Pig on the Ridge
November 4-5, 2016
“South Carolina is known for its beautiful beaches, pristine golf courses and endless
amounts of Southern charm, but it’s so much more than that. With hidden gems at every turn, the
Palmetto State is full of experiences that range from the historically significant to the deliciously
authentic – and some are even a little bit of both. Barbecue, for example, is a South Carolina
specialty that portrays a true sense of tradition and state pride for anyone who’s lucky enough to
taste it. Many visitors don’t realize that as The Birthplace of Barbeque, South Carolina mastered
the art of smoked meat long before anyone else. And that History can be traced all the way back
to the 1500’s, when American Indians first taught the Spanish the process of slow cooking with
smoke. Two hundred years later, the German settlers crafted the first version of the renowned
mustard blend, which still stands as South Carolina’s most popular sauce varietal. As time
passed, three more blends were cultivated to create the Official Four Sauces: mustard, vinegar
and pepper, light tomato and heavy tomato.” Slow and Low, Southern Living, June 2014.
Ridgeway is also known for our barbecue during Pig on the Ridge, November 4-5, 2016.
The barbecue trail meanders throughout South Carolina and explodes during Pig Time in
Ridgeway. You do not want to miss this annual, fun filled, family gathering. If you are interested
in not only eating but cooking, volunteering or being a crafts vendor, applications are online at
