Each year hundreds of volunteers in the community help the City of Kannapolis make the Jiggy with the Piggy Festival a huge success. The volunteers include members of four charitable organizations in the City. In addition to providing manpower and hospitality to festival attendees, the non-profits work concession stands in order to earn funds for their charity.   

In 2016 the four charities received approximately $14,000. 

The recipients were:     

 Kannapolis Rotary - $4,000 

 Cannon Memorial YMCA - $4,000 

 Dixie Youth League - $900 

Kannapolis Firefighters Assistance Foundation - $5,480     

By attending the festival and spending monies on concessions you help us make a difference.   Mark your calendars now – the Jiggy with the Piggy Festival, presented by Smithfield, will be May 5-6, 2017 in Downtown Kannapolis. Exciting new events and activities are planned for this year. Details coming soon!
