The North Carolina Pickle Festival was first held on September 12, 1987 where the entire festival events and features were held in a three-block section of Center Street in downtown Mount Olive.
Today, the event has grown to encompass nearly all of the Mount Olive’s downtown business area, where thousands attend each year.
As years have gone by, the award winning Pickle Festival tradition continues, having earned three awards from the N.C. Association of Festivals and Events for the 2014 Festival!
The festival features live entertainment, an antique car show, carnival rides, petting zoo, games, food, vendors, vintage farm equipment display – and of course, lots of pickles to eat.
