    In the spirit of community, St Mary’s Pork & Corn Roast features the best locally raised and locally cooked Pork in the entire world. If we may be so bold, it’s second to Nun (just a little Catholic joke).

    Pork & Corn Dinner: $10 Adult, $4 Kids 4~12, Kids under 4 eat free

    Pork, Pork, and More Pork: Slow roasted over a charcoal fire for 12 hours!

    Fresh Sweet Corn: Picked at 5am, Shucked at 9am, Cooked and Served at 1pm. Talk about fresh!

    Freshly Sliced Tomatoes: No old rotten tomatoes. Just the freshest we can find.

    Sour Kraut: Special St Mary’s blend! If we told you the recipe, you know what we’d have to do.

    Baked Beans: Fabulous! Ditto on the bean recipe.

    Apple Sauce: yummy!

    Bread: white, wheat or rye

    BBQ Sauce from Brother’s Ribs if you please! Delicious!

    Some Pork and Corn Roast History
    • The Roast is always the week after the Lake County Fair. The hogs are auctioned off at the fair and then donated by groups and individuals to the Roast.
    • During the first couple years the P & C Roast had an attendance of 500. We roasted only 6 pigs. Now we roast 24 pigs and attendance has grown to a few thousand over two days.

    Food is served from noon until 3 PM.

    Check out 2004 and 2005 pig roasts.

    St. Mary of the Annunciation

    Mundelein, IL 60060-9551

    St. Mary's is located on the southeast corner of Erhart Road and Fremont Center Road, slightly south of Rt. 60 (and slightly north of 176).

    Cathy, I saw a sign that they were having something on August 5 too. Do you know anything about this?

    HI,

    Normally I would link to the pig roast page with all details. They have not (yet) posted anything for this year. The following is clipped from their church bulletin about the concert the night before. They don't advise when the concert begins though the gates open at 6 PM. Based on last years schedule, the warm up band should be 6-7:30 PM with the main event beginning at 8 PM. I have never been there the night before so I cannot advise beyond what they state:

    Concert Will be Fun for All Ages Concert Will be Fun for All Ages
    We are excited to announce that the featured band for this year’s
    event is The Cryan’ Shames! “The Shames” are a Chicago-based
    band, and have been around for over 30 years. They have several
    songs that were billboard Top 40 hits in the late 60s and early70s!
    The Shames lead singer is none other then Bob Stroud, the most
    recognized radio personality in the Chicagoland area over the past
    23 years, and currently works the 10 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday thru
    Friday shift at 97.1 WDRV “The Drive.” The Cryan’ Shames play
    music that all ages will enjoy. So pack up your energy and get ready
    to dance and enjoy the good ole outdoors with family and friends.
    Opening up for The Shames this year is the Just Acoustic Band,
    who have played at previous Pork and Corn Roasts and promise to
    be as entertaining and fun to listen to as ever!

    Well I attended this and had a great time. I thought the “Shames” were terrific. The weather cooperated Saturday night and the rain came and went for Sunday's activities. Later Sunday did start to get a little warm.

    I was a little disappointed with the pork I had. I thought it was over cooked which gave it a dried out tough flavor. Seeing all the trouble they were taking the night before, I had high expectations. The corn and everything else was fantastic. I especially liked the baked beans and that tomato salad, wow.

    I was also disappointed in that I couldn’t go through the line twice. I thought it the past you were allowed to go back for seconds. I wanted to try some different pork and get some more corn.
