Come enjoy the inaugural Tri-state Pickle Festival. 

Beginning that morning enter into our first Pickle 5K. First male and female across the finish line get medals and cash prize based on participation. All paid participants get a t-shirt that says "I chased the Pickle @ OPA's tristate pickle festival 2019". Our mascot "Pickles" will be out front for all to chase! Children 10 and under are free to participate in the 5K. Run or walk, we welcome all.

At Noon get in on our first Owensboro Idol competition! Ron Rhodes, Joe Bird, Chad & Angel will be there to judge this annual singing competition. Trophy and cash prizes based on participation.

At 2:30 be the winner of our Pickle Juice Chug! Winners will be awarded a medal and bragging rights until next year when they will have to chug again to regain that right!

At 3PM enjoy a free concert! Wildsky, Alonzo Pennington and Troy Miller will take the stage and entertain you until our main attraction that evening around 7. Then Sundance Head, winner of the Voice in 2016 will be there to melt you with his beautiful voice. So bring a blanket or lawn chair and sit back and enjoy.

While you are enjoying the music let the kiddos play! There will be inflatables for both big and small, mechanical bull, face painting and lots of craft vendors and food trucks. Plus don't miss out on our snow cone booth with "yes you guessed it" pickle flavored snow cones! Fun for ALL!
