So how many pickles can you eat in five minutes?
NOTE: The North Carolina Pickle Festival and associated events, like the Pickle Eating Contest, are canceled because of concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Please check back with us for 2021.
Up to 14 contestants will find out at this year’s N.C. Pickle Festival Saturday, April 25th. The contest, in its fourth year, will take place at high noon at The News Argus Corner, located at the intersection of Center and East James streets. Winners in the men’s and women’s categories will receive a trophy, $30 cash, and bragging rights – at least until next year.
If you are interested in participating, call the Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce at 919-658-3113 or email your interest at email@example.com.
The contest is designed for adults 18 and over, and the field is limited to 14 contestants.
The contest features Mt. Olive whole Kosher Dills in the gallon jar, by the way. Just Dill-licious.
