For this year’s edition, we wanted to kick it up a notch and decided what better way than to ditch traditional payment methods and go digital! Say goodbye to paper Hoggy Dollar tickets and hello to cashless payment technology. Using your personalized RFID wristband, you will be able to purchase food and drinks on-site, all with a quick, simple tap!
And not to worry, although we are changing the way you pay, our main purpose still remains the same: to help families fighting pediatric brain cancer. We’re just making it easier and faster to pay!
Faster transaction times & shorter lineups
No need to fumble in your pockets for tickets or hit the ATM machine
Super convenient (your wristband is on you at all times)
Better control of your budget and spending (you choose how much to load)
Clear transaction records (registered users get email notifications)
Safe, secure and worry-free experience means more time to enjoy the festival
You will receive your RFID wristband when you arrive on-site in exchange for your ticket. However, if you want to get right to the action at Hogs for the Cause (highly recommended), you can come swap your ticket for your wristband early at one of our pre-event swap locations (see details below). Avoid the lines and swap beforehand!
So how does this all work anyways? Your personalized festival wristband is not only your ticket to get into Hogs for the Cause faster, but it will also be used as your digital wallet to make purchases at the event – all with a simple tap of your wristband! Gone are the days of having to worry about searching for or losing Hoggy Dollar tickets; instead, enjoy fast, convenient and secure transactions using your RFID-enabled wristband. Now, all you have to focus on is enjoying the event!
Cashless is the only method of payment on-site for food and drinks (Note: merchandise can still be purchased using cash, credit or debit). To ensure you’re ready to hit the ground running when you arrive at Hogs for the Cause, register your ticket online beforehand by linking it to your cashless account (ticket registration begins three weeks before the festival). Then, simply ‘top-up’ by loading pre-paid funds into your cashless account. Once you arrive at Hogs for the Cause, your ticket will be swapped for your wristband and any loaded funds will then be linked to your wristband.
You can top-up your account in two (2) convenient ways:
“Top-up Stations” located throughout the festival grounds

Your ticket will be swapped for your RFID wristband when you arrive on-site and all funds topped-up will then be linked to your wristband.
