Festival of the painted pig Tradition / Ritual in Aegimius | World Anvil

Festival of the painted pig

The pig festival is a biannual event that occurs in Bedale. The event started in 648 the year after they spared a pig from slaughter due to art from a local boy. Several individuals from the surrounding countryside came to see the art on the pig, and the town council and Mayor decided this could be a good tourist event. They hold the festivals from Arul 60-Ziri 1, and Indis 60 - Eleron 1 every year.

All pigs who win the contest are exempt from slaughter for the year.
