Over 100 vendors come from all over to sell pickles, food, baked goods, crafts, fashion, jewelry and much more.
Hundreds of varieties. If it’s pickled, you’ll find it here.
Not only is there a home pickling contest but the Pickle Triathlon offers a pickle eating contest, pickle juice drinking and a pickle toss.
VOLUNTEER! Volunteers wanted to help setup, organize the vendor spots, decorate, and we need help on the day of the event to park cars, check-in vendors and keep the grounds clean. We need volunteers after the event to help break it down! Community Service credits are available. Please click here to VOLUNTEER and be part of one of the coolest community of volunteers in Rosendale.
FOUNDED IN 1997
Rain or Shine! We do not cancel.
ABOUT THE PICKLE FESTIVAL:
Up to 4,000 people visit the Pickle Festival every year.
We host up to 100 vendors who sell pickles, groceries, hot food, baked goods, crafts and much more.
GOOD BYE We have to leave our beloved Rosendale because after 24 years, we weren’t allowed to park on the grassy fields at the Rec Center anymore. This caused much congestion and the parking lot only allowed space for handicap and vendors, therefore just about all 4,000 visitors were rerouted to offsite, shuttle parking. A decision was made to move the 2023 Pickle Festival to the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz.
