N.C. State Fair @ N.C. State Fair
Oct 13 – Oct 23 all-day
N.C. State Fair @ N.C. State Fair | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Mt. Olive Pickle has enjoyed an annual presence at the N.C. State Fair in Raleigh since the early 1950s, making us one of the longest-running commercial vendors at the fair.

We have a new location in 2016! Find us in The Marketplace, a huge tent across from the Rabbit Barn and adjacent to the N.C. State Howling Cow ice cream stand. We’ll be one of a number of commercial vendors in this space.

At our new location you’ll still be able to try your hand at the guessing game and pick up a scratch n sniff pickle sticker. And be sure to buy a whole Kosher Dill, Sweet, Sour, Dill or Hot n Spicy pickle for 50 cents. It’s one of the best bargains on the fairgrounds. www.ncstatefair.org

New Year’s Eve Pickle Drop @ Mt. Olive Pickle Company
Dec 31 @ 5:30 pm – 7:05 pm

PickleDrop2014-18

You are invited to the New Year’s Eve Pickle Drop, held at the Corner of Cucumber & Vine in Mount Olive on December 31.

Watch a glowing, three-foot pickle descend down the Mt. Olive Pickle Company flagpole and into a perfectly preserved redwood pickle tank at the stroke of 7 o’clock midnight. (When it’s 7 p.m. EST, it’s midnight GMT, which means we are official, we should “Happy New Year!” and we are home in bed long before midnight.)

Live music by The Harmony Boys begins at 5:30 this year. Enjoy free hot chocolate, cookies, and Mt. Olive Pickles. Bring a donation for the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina for a chance to receive a door prize. See the list of most needed items.

Get here early: the whole thing’s over at 7:05.

New Year’s Eve Pickle Drop @ Mount Olive Pickle Company
Dec 31 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
New Year's Eve Pickle Drop @ Mount Olive Pickle Company

Mark your calendars: Mt. Olive Pickle Company, Inc. will hold its annual New Year’s Eve Pickle Drop Sunday, December 31, 2017 at the Corner of Cucumber & Vine in Mount Olive.

The New Year’s Eve Pickle descends down the flagpole at the stroke of 7 p.m. midnight – that’s 7 o’clock EST, which also happens to be midnight Greenwich Mean Time. (That way, we are official, we shout Happy New Year! – and we don’t have to stay up until midnight.)

In the last several years thousands have turned out to watch the lighted, three-foot pickle drop down the company’s 45-foot flagpole and into a perfectly preserved redwood pickle tank at precisely 7 o’clock.

Video screens mark the countdown of the year’s final hour, from 6-7 p.m. The Harmony Boys will perform from 5:30-6:15, and then deejay L.J. Manley will lead the crowd in line dancing. Free refreshments – hot chocolate, cookies and pickles, are also served.

Another part of the Pickle Drop tradition is the canned food drive for the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Those bringing canned food or who make financial contributions receive a chance to win door prizes at the evening’s end. The grand prize is a pool pickle similar to the one that is dropped.
