Picklesburgh has been nominated by USA Today as one of the best specialty food festivals in the country. We need your help to make Pittsburgh and Picklesburgh top of the list! Pickle purists can vote every day through Monday, March 11 at https://bit.ly/VotePicklesburgh. Plus, please encourage friends and family via social media to share and to add their vote. Picklesburgh has caught the imagination not only of Pittsburghers but pickle-lovers from around the country with this free, three-day festival seeing visitors from 48 states in 2018. Since launching four years ago, Picklesburgh has attracted national attention with coverage that has included the Today Show, Good Morning America, Fox News, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Travel+Leisure, and dozens of local TV stations across the country. And it’s even receiving global attention including 2018 coverage in a UK foodie magazine just as British Airways announced direct service between Pittsburgh and London.
In addition to accolades for the Festival, Wigle Whiskey’s Eau De Pickle spirit, created for Picklesburgh in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, earned Wigle a national Innovation Award from the American Craft Spirits Association. The Innovation Award recognizes “remarkable spirits” and was one of only five innovation awards given out at the national craft spirits conference earlier this week in Minneapolis.
