St. Joe Pickle Festival

The St. Joe Pickle Festival celebrated its 21st year this month. Despite the heat hundreds of people came out to enjoy the pickle themed festival hosted by the quaint little town St. Joe, Indiana.



There were plenty of activities for kids ranging from face painting to slip and slides.



Plenty of pickle treats to choose from featuring pickle ice cream and fried pickles.


The festival started in 1996 as the St. Joe Festival. Then Sechler’s Pickles joined in and made it what it is today, a pickle festival. Planning starts around April with meetings up until the month of July. People from all around the country have traveled to the pickle festival to see what this little town has to offer.

The three day event ended on Saturday July, 22nd with another successful year in the books.
