Events We Love: The St. Joe Pickle Festival

Yes, this is real.

If you’re looking to take in some classic Americana this summer, head to the 22nd annual St. Joe Pickle Festival, taking place in St. Joe, Indiana.

The festival spans three days, from July 19th to July 21st, and has a different line-up of activities each day. Festivities include archery tag, music, a pickle decorating contest, animals, face painting, fireworks, and a tour of Sechler’s Pickle Factory (an almost hundred year old pickle vendor that pickles just about everything, from cauliflower to orange strips to raisins).

In the era of probiotics, pickles are an unlikely source of healthy gut bacteria– so consider this an adventure in strengthening your internal ecosystem.
