Hog Jam will be a summer’s day full of the best things in life – surfing, live music, art exhibits, and sensational Slow Food.In case you don’t already know, the Slow Food movement was founded in the late 1980s to counteract fast food and fast life. It promotes the enjoyment and protection of locally produced food products and regional cooking, and celebrates the social and cultural aspects of food – marvellous!. The day will revolve around a Hog Roast provided by the Cornish Pig Company, and the Hog Jam surf-off – a laid back approach to a surf contest with various hogs, logs and other dogs (surfboards) picked at random out of a hat for each contestant. Luck of the draw will depict how you ride. Other happenings during the day will include crafts, live acoustic music sessions throughout the afternoon, fish filleting demos and a live art show from Neil Erskine and Toby Ray. Vegetarians fear not; you will also be amply provided for. Contributors and supporters include: Slow Food Cornwall, Stranger magazine, Treyarnon Bay Youth Hostel, The Cornish Pig Company, Skinners Brewery, Dodo Pad Ltd, Camel Valley Vineyard, The Eden Project, The Pilchard Works… and many more.
