Akron Pickle Fest

Akron Pickle Fest at a glance

WHAT: OMG, you guys! Oddmall vendors are going to be bringing all sorts of awesome to the coolest new thing to hit the scene. It’s Akron Pickle Fest and it’s going to be ridiculously grand! How could a festival dedicated pickles not be? No way, is the answer. There is no way it could not be ridiculously grand (unless it was hosted by someone other than the amazing people at Stray Dog, which it is, so we’re good).

WHEN: August 14, 2022

WHEN WHEN: Sunday 11am-5pm

WHERE:  Canal Place – 520 Main St.  Akron, Ohio – Behind Building 24

HOW MUCH: What kind of monster would charge an entrance fee to a goosin’ Pickle Festival? We’re all good, dawg. Don’t even trip. Of course, donations are always appreciated… 

HOW: Ok, hear me out. You could drive but how cool would it be if you constructed some sort of gigantic pickle golem in your garage (or maybe your basement but then you’d have all the logistical problems associated with getting it up the stairs) and stood on its shoulder as it sauntered casually onto the scene? Yeah, do that.

HUH: Vendor and Food Truck information is but a click away…

WHY: Pickles are awesome. Akron is awesome. Oddmall is awesome. Stray Dog is awesome. Such a collaboration of awesomeness can only be made whole by the addition of awesome you and all your awesome friends. Make us whole, please. We have mouths to feed and all we have to put in them is a ridiculous amount of pickles.
