How Dill-lightful! Here's the Lowdown on the LES's Strangely Delicious Pickle Festival

There are some seriously dope festivals coming to NYC this fall. Dumpling Festival! DESSERT FESTIVAL!

We're definitely very spoiled (GET IT?).

And now, weirdly enough, a pickle festival!

Celebrate Pickle Day on the Lower East Side this year, on September 25th, for all the briny snacks you could ever ask for!

The festival will be on Orchard Street between East Houston and Delancey.

Be there at noon for a sh*t ton of pickles, but also some free games. Expect a DJ spinning tunes all afternoon and they'll be setting up giant jenga, checkers, and pickle cornhole, which we hope isn't played with actual pickles.

If you're into pickle-ing (?) things, you can even put your skills to the test at the homemade pickling contest.


Doctor Pickle, Messy Brine, Grillo's Pickles, Crooked Carrot, and The Pickle Guys will be the vendors setting up shop. Other pickled treats will be made available by some local restaurants, including Wassail, Ice & Vice, and Sam's Spring Roll.
