The Big Dill, which describes itself as the “#1 Pickle Party in the World”, returns to Power Plant Live! at 34 Market Pl in Baltimore on September 23 and 24. The two day event will include pickle sampling, concerts, carnival games, a pickle eating contest, a brine chugging competition, and an appearance by “Dilly” the pickle. Pickle flavored cupcakes, donuts, fudge, ice cream, and pizza are a few of the items that will be available for purchase at the event.
Per the Big Dill: The Big Dill World’s Largest Pickle Party® is the premier pickle event of the year, featuring a pickle garden with 10+ handpicked artisan pickle companies sampling and selling a variety of pickles from all over the country. After the festival, attendees will receive a survey to vote for their favorite pickle company that will win The Best in Show. Entertaining guests throughout the weekend is a modern country, pop, and rock-themed live stage production with performances by musicians, actors, comedy routines, and choreographed dancers. Guests are also entertained by the crowd’s favorite, The Pickle Eating Championship featuring competitive eaters and the hilarious Brine Chug Challenge.
Custom-themed cocktails and liquor experiences are developed by familiar brands Tullamore D.E.W., The Original Pickle Shot, Milagro tequila, and Old Bay® Vodka to keep 21+ attendees celebrating throughout the day. Photo-Ready Attractions are placed throughout the festival, and Giant L.E.D. Video Walls capture all the stage action, so fans never miss a second while in concession lines.
A section of the festival is dedicated to carnival games to entertain kids, mascots including The Big Dill’s own Dilly the Pickle™ traverse the festival grounds dancing and taking pictures with guests; plus, you can test your rodeo skills with indoor bull riding. And you can’t miss the food selection where guests get to munch on pickled-themed culinary delights, including fried pickles, pickle pizza, pickle egg rolls, pickle fries, and pickle ice cream, in addition to your traditional carnival treats and sweets.
