Get Involved

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.

Picklesburgh is not built in a day. Well… actually it is and we need your help to get all of the brine flowing.
