As restaurants across the state reopen following loosened COVID-19 restrictions, the Iowa Pork Producers Association wants to reward customers for supporting them!

Iowa Pork Crawl Freestyle is exactly what it sounds like! Visit any Iowa eateries and order pork entrees for chances to win great prizes! Unlike a typical crawl-style event, this isn’t limited to a single day or even one weekend—you pick your stops all summer long (June 26 through Aug. 30)!

Listed below are the official rules and details.


  • EAT OUT with either dine-in, carry-out or delivery service from any Iowa food establishment (restaurant, food truck, mobile vendor, etc.) between June 26 and Aug. 30.
  • CHOOSE PORK. Select any entrée for your meal where pork is the main ingredient, such as a pork chop, a breaded pork tenderloin, pork tacos, a pulled pork sandwich, barbecue pork, pork ribs, a B.L.T., a Cuban sandwich, a bratwurst, etc.
  • PHOTOGRAPH IT. Take a picture or selfie with your pork entrée. Picture must include you and your entrée.
  • Complete your crawl by enjoying five pork entrees from five different Iowa restaurants.
  • SHARE your completed Iowa Pork Crawl on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for chances to win great prizes. The final day to post is Aug. 30.
    • Post must include ALL five of your pork entrée selfies. Tag @IowaPork and use the hashtag #IowaPorkCrawl. Your post must also include the restaurants you visited. Mention them with that specific picture or include them in your main post.
    • For every five pork entrees and restaurants visited, participants can post again for more chances to win.
    • Rule: Social media posts MUST be made public to qualify. Private posts will not be seen.
  • PRIZES FOR FIRST PARTICIPANTS. The first 25 Iowa residents to complete their crawl and properly share their experience on social media will win a pork swag bag that includes our famous “Pork It’s What We Smoke Here” T-shirt, a meat thermometer, an Iowa Pork can koozie and $10 in Pork Cash that can be redeemed for fresh pork products at most major Iowa grocery retailers. One swag bag per person.
  • GRAND-PRIZE PACKAGES. Once the crawl ends, two lucky participants (must be Iowa residents) who accurately post their Iowa Pork Crawl experience will be randomly selected to each win a grand prize package valued at $500. The first winner will get their choice between two packages:
