Winchester’s fall pickle festival is a dilly | Lifestyles

WINCHESTER — There may be lots of fall festivals this time of year, but Winchester’s Pickle Festival is a dilly.

It’s a more than two-decade tradition in this small town tucked near the Massachusetts border in the southwest corner of New Hampshire.

Every year at this time, a green hue takes over Main Street. There are pickles everywhere, from whole, hand-held versions to the smaller sliced and fried choices.

There are pickle-eating contests, pickle-inspired parade floats and crafts and the trademark pickle photo-opp on the lawn. (Visitors stick their heads through round holes in a big piece of painted plywood to transform themselves into a pair of pickle people, one flashing a peace sign and the other a thumbs-up.)

Even some of the tractors are pickle green, though John Deere may have something to do with that color scheme.

This year’s festival will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. along Main Street, where free Patriot Pickle Company pickles will be available, while supplies last, at the corner at Route 119.

The light-hearted Pickle Parade will step off at 10 a.m. Participants will start lining up at 9 a.m. in the Kulick’s Market’s parking lot.

The theme this year, appropriately enough, is “Keeping It Green.”

There also will be a canning contest, a chainsaw wood-carving demonstration, the 23rd annual Cow Plot contest and magic shows by Ben Pratt.

Parking will be available at Winchester School, 85 Parker St., where people can take a shuttle bus to the festivities.

The center is also the place to go for Saturday’s 8 a.m. Family Fun Run.
