Lower East Side Pickle Day Returning November 4 [Updated]
Fall 2011 was a sour season, having elapsed without the appearance of the popular International Pickle Day on the Lower East Side. The one-year lapse was partially attributed to a slight organizational shift – the NYC Food Museum divested after a decade of participation and the one-off Peck Slip Pickle Festival made an appearance.
Consequently, management of International Pickle Day fell to the Lower East Side BID. And as expected, the briny tradition is returning at the end of the month in tandem with the on-again-off-again DayLife pedestrian mall on upper Orchard Street.
New banners affixed to the Bishop’s Crook light posts confirm the October 28 date of festivities. Due to Hurricane Sandy (“Frankenstorm”), the event is postponed until November 4.
