We LOVE our Veterans and active-duty military. When there is an opportunity to support them, we're all in. We all have a chance this Saturday, May 18, 2024, to support the Burlington VFW Post 1605 at their inaugural Burlington VFW Pig Roast!

These Little Piggies Went All the Way to Burlington, Maine VFW Post 1605

To get into the event and most importantly, EAT, it's only a $10 donation. On the menu will be LOTS of mac & cheese thanks to a mac & cheese competition. If you want to partake, dishes must be in before 12:30 pm. The top three winners will receive gas cards.

Have Fun and Win Prizes While Raising Money for Our Maine Veterans

Burlington VFW Post 1605 has teamed up with ATV club Cold Stream Cruzers and Trailmaster Justin to make sure this is not only an event that helps our Veterans but also brings fun to our community this Saturday!

Purple Cornhole Bean Bag Toss Game

Trailmaster Justin has reached out to other incredible, local organizers to bring a cribbage tournament AND cornhole tournament to this inaugural event. The cornhole tournament with Lincoln Lakes Cornhole begins at 10 am. It's a $20 entrance fee per person and your partner is picked at random (to make things interesting and as fair as possible).

Half of the pot goes to the winners, and the other half goes to the VFW! The cribbage tournament begins shortly after the cornhole tournament at 11 am so you can participate in both. There will also be live music from the talented musicians, The Errol Libby Band.

Don't Miss the Fun of Supporting Your Maine Veterans and Community

The doors open at 9 am and you can get your tickets here in advance. We were sold on supporting our Veterans (and admittedly, mac & cheese.) We hope to see you at the Burlington VFW Post 1605 this Saturday.
