Look for 2024 information soon!

Brought to you by the City of Elgin Main Street Program, the annual Hogeye Festival is a downtown street festival held on the 4th Saturday of October. Hogeye celebrates community, family, famous Elgin Sausage, and all things swine! 

Play Cow Patty Bingo and win fabulous prizes based on where a cow does her or his business (splatter matters in this game). Sample the winners at the BBQ Pork Cook Off, dance all day to live music. 

Enjoy handmade arts and crafts, the Pearls Before Swine Art Show, and kid's activities. Stroll through the Road Hog Car Show. Test your aim at the ACME Brick throwing contest before you take a rest on a hay bale. Join us as we sing along to "P-O-R-K in the USA" and “Hoofloose” while the Harleys roll in with The Elgin Sowpremes.This is a free festival that is produced by the Elgin Main Street Board, organized by local hogunteers (volunteers), and underwritten by generous business sponsors. 

Join us for “The Best Little Pig Gig In Texas” in Downtown Elgin!
