Pickerington is the Violet Capital of Ohio. Settlers chose the name “Violet Township” in 1808 because of the variety and abundance of soft purple flowers growing wild in the area. After the Ohio Legislature designated Pickerington as the Violet Capital of Ohio in 1996, the Violet Festival was created to celebrate Pickerington’s and Violet Township’s charm and hospitality.
