Dear Pickle Me Poconos Supporter,
Due to the risks associated with the COVID-19 Public Health Crisis and in accordance with the Center for Disease Control & Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines the Pocono Chamber of Commerce?s PLOT Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 Pickle Me Poconos festival, initially scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2020.
The PLOT Committee is busy at work planning the 2021 Pickle Me Poconos Festival, and it is going to be an #evenbiggerDILL! If you do not already be sure to follow the Official Pickle Me Poconos Facebook Page. Over the next few months, the PLOT Committee will be sharing pickle recipes, promotions, ideas, trivia, videos, DIYs, photos, the #adventuresofMrPickle and SO MUCH MORE. We know the past few months have been incredibly hard for our small business community and we want to be able to share their products and promotions with our platform of 300,500+ Pickle Fanatics! If you have content that you would like to share on our official Pickle Me Poconos Facebook Page or if you have any questions please contact Liz Blose at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-421-4433.

We are currently in the process of working with the East Stroudsburg Borough and East Stroudsburg University to secure a 2021 date which will correspond with ESU?s Family Weekend. Currently, the tentative date and time for the festival is Saturday, October 2nd from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

The Pocono Chamber?s PLOT Committee is saddened the current circumstances will not allow us to gather in-person to celebrate all things pickled this year, but the safety and security of our community and festival goers is our top priority. We will keep you informed as more information becomes available for next year and can?t wait to make PMP 2021 an #evenbiggerdill.
Be well and stay safe!
