This event is in the past.
National Pig Day, observed annually on the 1st of March, recognizes the domesticated pig. This holiday includes events and celebrations at zoos, schools, nursing homes and sporting events around the United States. Pig parties, pig parades and gatherings with pig collectibles are a few of the other events that have commemorated National Pig Day.
There are hundreds of different breeds, most of which are descended from the Eurasian Wild Boar. The female is called a gilt and can produce 10 piglets in a single litter. They also produce bacon, ham, baby back ribs, spare ribs, sirloin, pork belly and oh, so many more delectable barbecue items it would be a shame to not honor the swine on this day of all days.
