JJ's Hog Roast was started 8 years ago to remember and honor the loved ones that we have lost. Over the years it has become so much more thanks to everyone who attends year after year, the amazing sponsors that have partnered with us, and the awesome volunteers that dedicate their time to set up, work, and clean up over the weekend of the event.
