Pig & Whiskey will take place Halloween weekend.

What's spookier than a celebration of barbecued meat, top-shelf whiskey, and local live music taking place on Halloween weekend? We could argue not attending a celebration of barbecued meat, top-shelf whiskey, and local live music is pretty damn scary.

Don't fear the FOMO: Pig & Whiskey, the annual Ferndale blowout co-produced by Metro Times and Woodward Avenue Brewers, returns.

The free weekend-long festival, which has moved from summer to Oct. 29-31, will offer access to an array of BBQ vendors and other munchies, as well as whiskey, craft brews, cocktails, and other spirits.

What would a party be without tunes? Pig & Whiskey will, once again, host a slew of artists ranging from a finalist from NBC's The Voice, a 20-year-old small-town country artist, and a Detroit cowpunk band that emerged during the '90s and gave one Jack White an early break when he served as their drummer.

This year's Pig & Whiskey will feature performances by Laith Al-Saadi, Myron Elkins, Goober and the Peas, as well as the Muggs, Tart, Black Note Graffiti, and others.
