This annual festival showcases Downtown Pittsburgh’s riverfront and is designed to have wide appeal across the Greater Pittsburgh community including young adults, suburban families, and small-town citizens. Picklesburgh is brought to you by The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), the non-profit organization behind some of Pittsburgh’s most successful, popular, and imaginative events including Comcast Light Up Night®, the Market Square Farmers Market, Downtown Rooftop Shindigs, Saturday Night Market, and the Peoples Gas Holiday Market™ among many others.
The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) is a dynamic, non-profit consortium of Downtown stakeholders including corporations, professionals, civic organizations, foundations and residents. PDP serves as a catalyst for fostering the economic vitality of Downtown and improves the quality of life for Downtown residents and businesses. PDP manages Downtown’s Business Improvement District and is responsible for the ubiquitous yellow-shirted Clean and Safe teams around town. Notably, PDP was the lead entity behind the reinvention of Market Square and the recent proliferation of sidewalk cafes and façade renovations.
