LET'S MEET AT THE PALOOZA

A PALOOZA IS A PARTY. YOU'LL SEE.

There's so much to see

Come early, stay late. There is something for everyone, all day long!
Pickle Market

Visitors to the Pickle Market will be treated to more than 70 arts & crafts, cottage food and other retail vendors. Here, you will find a unique array of goods guaranteed to catch your interest, from canned pickles to pickle-themed shirts and everything in between.

Pickle Playground

The Pickle Playground is free for our guests with a variety of games and activities for the kids. Enjoy the petting zoo, burn off energy in our bounce houses, create a craft, have your face painted, or play a game - you'll find something for every child. Hours: 10 - 12:30 & 2:30 - 6
Playground is closed during the parade.

Pickle Contests

Think you can be the fastest to eat a jar of pickles? Or drink pickle juice quicker than your friends? How many fried pies can you down? At the Palooza, you can put these skills to the test and join in on one of our free contests. Contestants must be at least 16 years old. Entries are limited. Sign up early on parade day at the Pickle Parade booth on the southeast corner of Oak and Main streets. Free! Prizes for winners!

Live Entertainment

We've hosted several of DFW's best bands in recent years and have more planned for 2017. We'll be dancing away to some great tunes. You'll be treated to some dances from the Pickle Queens and their Pickle Protectors. And the Pickle Dude's got some moves!
