The North Carolina Pickle Festival recently received two state-wide awards at the recent North Carolina Association of Festival & Events Showfest. This is the 23rd consecutive year that we have been recognized for our festival. These awards are for our 2017 festival.
We were recognized for Best Print Media for our Mount Olive Tribune tabloid and Best Merchandise for our pickle ornament. Wayne County received 4 awards overall with our tourism bureau, Wayne County Travel and Tourism, winning for their event Wings over Wayne Airshow and Beak Week/Poultry Festival!
