About the event
Each year in April, Mount Olive the community and Mt. Olive the company come together to celebrate a dill-lightful relationship. The award-winning North Carolina Pickle Festival is a fun, family-friendly event that kicks off on Friday night and runs all day Saturday in downtown Mount Olive. For 2021 we will hold a mix of live and virtual events, but not the street festival experience of previous years. We will hold pickle eating and recipe contests virtually, the Cuke Patch 5K, both virtual and in person, and a drive in movie. Other events include a virtual and in person history walk and a local pickle treasure hunt.
