International Pickle Festival

Anything that can be pickled—from fruit to fish and beyond—will be found awash in brine at the 17th annual International Pickle Festival in Rosendale on November 23. Expect to fend off hundreds of other pickle aficionados among the tables of samples at the Rosendale Rec Center. There'll be eating (including fried pickles, of course), a pickle-tossing contest (you'll need a partner with an agile mouth), and a brine-drinking contest (the first to suck a 24-ounce container of pickle juice, seeds and all, through a straw is the winner). Not to mention ample entertainment, including live music and dancing. Proceeds of the Pickle festival benefit to the Rosendale Youth Center, the Women's Club Spring Clean Sweep projects, the Food Pantry, and other civic projects. (845) 658-9649; Picklefest.com

  • The International Pickle Festival returns to Rosendale on November 23.
