This Weekend: Pig Mountain

Main Street Narrowsburg plays host this Saturday to an all-out celebration of local food, the Pig Mountain Pig Roast and Veggie Fest.

As the name implies, the headliner is pork: specifically, a herd of 15 roasted pigs prepared by a herd of 15 high-profile chefs. 

The chefs include local favorites, like Paul Nanni of Narrowburg's own The Heron restaurant, and NYC imports like Lauren Resler of Mexican restaurant Empellon and Cesare Casella of Italian restaurant Salumeria Rosi. (Apparently, all the flatlander chefs are bunking summer-camp style with each other for three days to prep.)

Don't like pork? The one-time $35 entry fee will get you access to an entire street of food vendors, including some slinging veggies of many varieties.

It's a fundraiser, so a portion of the proceeds go to helping the Center for Discovery, which runs adult and pediatric rehabilitation programs for disabled individuals and has its own farm.

Pig Mountain Pig Roast and Veggie Fest. Saturday, August 23, 5 - 9 p.m., Main Street, Narrowsburg. $35 tickets.
