Hogeye Festival

Elgin, TX, USA

Hogeye Festival

Words by Nelson Taylor

Cows may be kings in Texas, but hogs are...fat, dirty, weird creatures that taste good with eggs. And to celebrate their importance to the economy of itty-bitty Elgin, since 1987 the town has been hosting the Hogeye Festival every October. Come ham it up chasing a greased pig, test your hog calling technique and register for a chance to win $1,500 playing cow patty bingo.
