National Pickle Day’s roots can be traced back to 1949, as part of National Pickle Week, thanks to the National Pickle Packers Association. Pickle sales increased 22% as a result of the inaugural National Pickle Week.
The world’s largest pickle festival is held in New York’s Lower East Side. Games, face painting, live DJs, balloon animals, carnival games, pickles on a stick, pickle ice cream, and a giant talking pickle are all part of the pickle celebration. I guess you could say, where there’s a dill, there’s a day!
