The next N.C. Pickle Festival remains on schedule.

Town officials canceled the annual, award-winning event last spring due to COVID-19.

Jammie Royall, town manager, said talk of another cancellation surfaced during a meeting with the festival committee. But with the availability of the coronavirus vaccine, he feels confident the festival will take place April 23-24.

One of eastern North Carolina’s largest outdoor celebrations, festival-goers can expect a scaled-down version in 2021.

Vendors may be impacted, too.

The committee plans to increase safety measures.

“All I can do at this time is keep close tabs on the COVID issues, but we are keeping our fingers crossed,” Royall said.
