Today, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) announced Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 17, 2022 as the scheduled dates for Downtown Pittsburgh’s beloved ‘Picklesburgh’ event. The PDP is actively working with the city to finalize a new footprint, but it is expected that this highly popular event will expand even further to accommodate anticipated crowds.
A massive array of dill-ectable products and foods will be central to all that is Picklesburgh, but the event will also have a lot more options for pickle fanatics to experience, from dozens of live music performances to other popular activities like Pickle Cocktails, Pickle Beer, Pickle Juice Drinking Contest, and an abundance of pickle-themed apparel, merch, and much much more.

Twice voted the #1 Specialty Food Festival in the US, this culinary and cultural celebration will, once again, fly the signature Heinz pickle balloon. As with prior activations, Picklesburgh will offer a unique space for festival-goers to linger, enjoy food, listen to music and relish the energy of the event.
“Picklesburgh attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year, and we want to ensure that this year is the best yet,” said Jeremy Waldrup, president, and CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership. “As a signature event for the city and region, and with such a dedicated fan base in Pittsburgh, we’re always excited to share the news of its return. So, save the date and get ready for all the fabulous festivities, food, and fun – it’s really going Dill-iver!“
Established in 2015, Picklesburgh is a cornerstone activation for the PDP that continues to build momentum and attract national attention. The event claimed its second consecutive #1 victory in USA Today’s Best Specialty Food Festival in America in 2020.
More details about the expanded 2022 event will be announced in the coming weeks.
