Home of Indiana pork festival pigs out on McRib’s return



Tipton, Indiana – The location of a pig festival in central Indiana that has been going on for more than 50 years celebrated the return of the McRib sandwich on Friday.

Earlier in the week, McDonald’s declared that its boneless, seasoned pork patty served with BBQ sauce, slivered onions, and dill pickles on a bun will be making a comeback in Indiana and southwest Michigan for a “limited time.”

At the city’s McDonald’s, the Indiana Pork Producers Association presented Friday’s Fun. For a ceremonial “first bite,” Democratic Mayor Tom Dolezal was accompanied by a member of the City Council, a hog farmer, and the proprietor/operator of the neighborhood restaurant.

According to a McDonald’s press release, the restaurant chain buys goods from Indiana farmers valued at close to $30 million, including 13 million pounds of pig.

Promoters stated that the 520-calorie sandwich and McRib memorabilia would not be sold nationally again for some time after November 2022, when it last appeared on menus as part of a “farewell tour” a year ago.

September 7-9 was the date of the 2023 Tipton County Pork Festival.
