Picklesburgh 2022: Friday, July 15 – Sunday, July 17

The Destination for all Things Pickled

Picklesburgh is for everyone – from pickle fanatics to just pickle curious. With the help of our sponsors, vendors, and volunteers, we’ve assembled a three-day event around all things pickled. It’s not just about pickled food though.  No celebration would be complete without music. A broad selection of local musicians and genres will grace the stage, all set to the backdrop of a glorious Downtown Pittsburgh.

What’s the big dill?

On July 15, 16, and 17 the Rachel Carson Bridge in Downtown Pittsburgh transforms into Picklesburgh, highlighted by a giant flying Heinz pickle balloon, custom built by a team that also crafts balloons for Disney and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

The Picklesburgh festival is a culinary celebration that goes beyond the dill pickle to include international dishes, prepared foods and artisan cocktails that feature pickled ingredients; an embrace of the farm-to-table movement and the rising popularity of canning; a selection of handcrafted foods and artisan cocktails from local restaurants; informative how-to demos and author talks at our demo area; merchandise such as pickled goods, books and DIY products.
