Hillbilly Pig Races

Come on out and see the Hillbilly Pig Races at the Carroll County Fair for the First Time!!!

Pig races have become one of the best attended events at fairs across the United States since the 1980’s so we are going to start this year with our first “Hillbilly Pig Races”.

We will try to have at least 4 pigs race in each race we have scheduled.  The pigs will be 6-8 weeks and older.  Each pig will be given a number.A bugler will call the pigs to the track.  They will then start at the starting gate at the sound of the bell.  It will be one lap around the track and the checkered flag will signal the winner.    We need the crowd to be the cheerleaders for the races!  Each scheduled race will last approximately 15 minutes.
