14th Annual Dizzyfest

Saturday, May 4th, 2019    
Dizzy Pig HQ – 11301 Braden Dr, Manassas, VA 20109

Join Us in Perfectly Seasoned and Sauced Hog Heaven

It’s DizzyFest, the annual celebration of good eats cooked up on a Big Green Egg right here in Virginia. With a spirit of deepest appreciation, the Dizzy Pig gathers with our club members, BGE enthusiasts and fans of fresh ground flavor to cook and eat up.

We kicked off our first fest in Fall 2011, mirroring the much-loved EggFest that began in Atlanta, and have been going strong ever since. We pull in at least 300 attendees at each fest, with more than 20 cook teams to delight taste buds and push the boundaries of this unique type of grilling.

Our cook teams travel from as far as Texas, Minnesota and Nebraska, and the dishes are more creative than you (or we) could ever have imagined. Think Krispy Kreme grilled cheeses, Pork Belly Banh Mi, quail eggs, scotch eggs, venison biscuits & gravy. Have we seen a pig head roasted on the Big Green Egg? Why, yes … yes we have. Thank you for asking.

So don’t wait to reserve your spot, either as a taster or a cook team, and bring home a demo Big Green Egg at a discounted price. Read on for more details.
