Back Beach Barbecue’s Sixth Annual Hog Bash

Spread the love

to Benefit South Walton Academy

On Saturday, June 22, Back Beach Barbecue will host their seventh annual “Hog Bash” to celebrate another year in business in Panama City Beach. Proceeds raised from the annual event will directly benefit South Walton Academy.

Back Beach Barbecue opened its doors in June 2017 and is owned and operated by Danny and Monica Cosenzi, the duo behind the famed Restaurant Paradis located in Rosemary Beach, Fla. Named “Best Barbecue on the Beach” by Good Grit Magazine and “Best Sandwich and Best Catering on the Emerald Coast” by Emerald Coast Magazine, Back Beach Barbecue has served locals and visitors alike from their simple yet refined menu of slow-cooked meats, homemade sides and sauces, as well as gluten free options for years.

From 12-4 p.m., the Panama City Beach restaurant, located at 19714 Panama City Beach Parkway, will welcome guests for an afternoon celebration featuring a whole smoked hog, live music, giveaways, and refreshments by local purveyors including Distillery 98 and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company. For a $20 donation, guests will receive a plate filled with Back Beach’s signature pulled pork, barbeque baked beans, coleslaw and bread.

To commemorate the restaurant’s anniversary, Back Beach Barbecue will donate a portion of the proceeds to South Walton Academy, a private, non-profit inclusion school and pediatric therapy clinic in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. The school serves all children, from age three through 9th grade, while working to bridge the gap between communication and children with autism. The new therapy clinic provides speech and occupational therapy to all children up until they are 18 years old.

This event is free and open to the public to attend. To learn more about Back Beach Barbecue and to stay up to date on events, new menu arrivals, and more, like their Facebook page or visit
