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.
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, ride the train, have your face painted, or play a game - you'll find something for every child. Hours: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
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 12 years old. Entries are limited. Sign up early on parade day at the Pickle Queen booth on the southeast corner of Oak and Main streets. Free! Prizes for winners!
We've hosted several of the best bands in Texas in recent years and have more planned for 2018. Hear legendary Cajun singer Wayne Toups, local rockers Run4Cover, Dallas party band Downtown Fever and Texas favorite Coffey Anderson. You'll be treated to some dances from the Pickle Queens and their Pickle Protectors. And the Pickle Dude's got some moves!
