If you are a pickle fan, or even if you only kind of like them, St. Joe is where you will want to be July 14-16 for the 26th annual Famous St. Joe Pickle Festival, located in downtown St. Joe, about 20 miles northeast of Fort Wayne. 

When you get there, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to tour Sechler’s Pickle Factory, the highlight of any trip to St. Joe, to find out everything you need to know about the industry and how those delicious pickles are sent to stores. 

Other items that should be on your agenda while you’re there are the Pickle Derby, food and craft vendors, kids activities and games, live music, a kids tractor pull, the pickle-themed parade and the grand finale fireworks. 

There will even be dill-icious pickle-flavored ice cream available for everyone to enjoy.
