The Pigfest Society
Friendly Dinner Discourse On Culture, History, Political Economy, Philosophy and the Theology Behind It All
The Pigfest Society is an ad hoc gathering of young and old alike who meet to indulge in great conversation as they forage for good food and drink. The first Pigfests at the Homestead were held in 2000. Hosted in the context of spirited Christian hospitality, each gathering features a moderated discussion of the big issues of the day — connected as appropriate to specific calls to action that foster a more flourishing society. Organized in the tradition of The Clapham Circles formed by William Wilberforce, The Pigfest Society follows the general Rules of Order practiced by Ben Franklin’s Junto Society, which are explained by the moderator at the start of each gathering.
