CLEVELAND (WJW) – Attention pickle enthusiasts — your favorite festival went from noon to 6 p.m. in downtown Cleveland Saturday.
Cleveland Pickle Fest happened at Mall B on Saturday, featuring pickle-eating contests, live music and, of course, all things sweet and savory.
There was plenty of pickles to try from local and regional companies, but also a variety of pickle-flavored foods and drinks, like beers, desserts, candy, pizza and slaw.
There were more than 50 venders at the event.
Pickle-eating contest winners received a trophy, $50 and a month’s supply of pickles — a prize that some may consider to be “a big dill.”
General admission was $5, but guests can also get a $30 VIP ticket, which includes giveaways and access to a private bar, private bathrooms and exclusive pickle-flavored beers.

The event was organized by Greater Cleveland Volunteers.
