The annually celebrated Lower East Side Pickle Day is returning to Orchard Street this Sunday (October 14). As usual, the event will span the three-block pedestrian mall between Delancey and East Houston Streets.
Banners advertising the forthcoming Pickle Day – the eighteenth iteration – were attached to light poles along Orchard Street last month.
Once again, the street will be transformed into a brine bash for five straight hours (noon to 5pm). Over twenty pickle vendors will participate, plus pushcart setups by local restaurants and boutiques, live music, activities, and maybe some astro-turf.
Pickle Day 2017
The neighborhood tradition of Pickle Day is sponsored by the Lower East Side Partnership. Up until five years ago, it was traditionally held on Orchard Street between Broome and Grand. Now it spans three blocks and is one of the go-to “foodie” destination festivals in the neighborhood.
Even newcomer Essex Crossing is getting involved this year…
