Go ahead, pig out.

3rd Ward’s annual free hog barbecue, featuring a chef, five bands, beer, and, of course, a whole pig, returns to the Bushwick space on July 18.

Chef Alex McCrery, who runs the Williamsburg food truck The Goods, will be manning the pit at the Morgan Avenue outdoor alleyway event. He’ll make pulled pork tacos from the smoky, juicy meat, which will be served with coleslaw and pickles.

“It’s our biggest event of the year, and the whole pig is a lot of fun,” said Jessica Pom, the marketing director for 3rd Ward, the coalition of artsy types that puts on the pig-out. “It’s truly an urban pig roast.”

Live music will add to the authentic cook-out ambience. The Ramblers, a Brooklyn-based four-piece reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival, should especially stand out. Other acts on the bill include the more poppy sounding The Fieros and Le Mood, as well as In Cadeo and Cletus and the Barnburners.

Because after that feast, you’re going to need something you can move to.

Annual Pig Out at 3rd Ward [195 Morgan Ave. between Meadow and Stagg streets in Bushwick, (718) 715-4961], July 18, 2-9 pm.
