What is The Big Dill World’s Largest Pickle Party®?
The Big Dill World’s Largest Pickle Party® is the premier pickle event of the year, featuring a pickle garden with 10+ handpicked artisan pickle companies sampling and selling a variety of pickles from all over the country.
A section of the festival is dedicated to carnival games to entertain kids; mascots, including The Big Dill’s own Dilly the Pickle™, traverse the festival grounds dancing and taking pictures with guests; plus, you can test your rodeo skills with indoor bull riding. And you can’t miss the food selection where guests can munch on pickled-themed culinary delights, including fried pickles, pickle pizza, pickle egg rolls, pickle fries, pickle ice cream, and your traditional carnival treats and sweets.
Entertaining guests throughout the weekend is a modern country, pop, and rock-themed live stage production with performances by musicians, actors, comedy routines, and choreographed dancers. Guests are also entertained by the crowd’s favorite, The World Pickle Eating Championship featuring competitive eaters and the hilarious fan-favorite Brine Chug Challenge.
Custom-themed cocktails and liquor experiences are developed by familiar brands Tullamore D.E.W., The Original Pickle Shot, Milagro Tequila, and Old Bay® Vodka to keep 21+ attendees celebrating throughout the day. Photo-Ready Attractions are placed throughout the festival and Giant L.E.D. Video Walls capture all the stage action, so fans never miss a second while in concession lines.
