What makes the Pickle parade special?

This event is growing by leaps and bounds! The inaugural parade in 2011 drew 5,000 spectators along Main Street, grew to 10,000 in 2014, and in 2019 organizers expect 35,000 to 45,000 visitors throughout the course of the two-day event. Various booths and activities support local charities.

 

History of the event

Mansfield was named the pickle capital by the Texas Legislature in 2013, paying homage to Mansfield’s homegrown pickle and condiment maker, Best Maid Products, which opened in 1926 and now churns out 50 million pickles a year in Mansfield.

 

Please Note:

Construction on South Main Street means the St. Paddy’s Pickle Parade will take a new route this year. Visit pickleparade.org to see the revised route and pick your spot to watch the parade!
