Gone are the days where being "in a pickle" was considered a negative thing. This fall, you can confidently invite all your friends to have the best time in a pickle at the totally free InAPickle festival in Houston!
On Saturday, September 7th from 11 am to 5 pm, you can enjoy pickle-themed everything at Kingwood Town Center Park.
We're truly in for a treat with the already-confirmed vendors who will all bring their own specially-crafted pickle menu item. We don't know how some of them will do it, but we're hopeful. Here are just a few:
- GastroCraft food truck
- Iron Hill Organics
- Signature Puf Cotton Candy
- Paco Pops
- Ingenious Brewing Company
- Crazy Pickle & Jelly Girl
- Benny's Dawgs
- Gooroo's Wood Fire Pizza Truck
- JB's Pantry Pickles
If you're a true pickle-fanatic you'll venture out and try the Pickle Popsicle from Paco Pops or even this pickle-flavored cupcake, if you dare.
There will even be a pickle eating contest and a pickling contest. But the fun extends beyond just eating glorified cucumbers - you can drink them too in a pickle juice drinking contest! Alright, alright, aside from the pickles...
At the festival, there will be live music, mechanical bull riding, face painting (transform into a pickle!), and a giant bouncy house.
There will also be a silent auction held to benefit Cure For Connor that aims to find a cure for Hunter Syndrome.
So next time you find yourself in a pickle, let it be a reminder that Houston has a lot of delicious ways of crafting food with pickles and you need to experience it.
Grab your friends and get ready to stuff your face at the first-ever pickle fest in Texas that will be held on September 7th.
Address: Kingwood Town Center Park, 8 North Main Street, Houston, TX 77339
Why you should go: Because it's a free event with all things pickled!
