Have you been jonesing for some dill pickle ice cream? Missing those potato and pickle pierogis? Fancy a cocktail crafted from a pickled spirit? Well good news – Picklesburgh, recently voted the #1 Specialty Food Festival in America by readers of USA Today, will return to Downtown Pittsburgh, for three days of pickled products, live music, no-holds-barred contests, demonstrations, and of course, selfie opportunities with the 35-foot inflatable Heinz Pickle balloon. This free event will be held Friday, July 26 through Sunday, July 28, 2019.
New for 2019, the festival footprint will double in size to better accommodate the large, enthusiastic crowds that come to experience all things pickled. In addition to the Roberto Clemente Bridge, the festival will extend to the riverside lanes of Ft. Duquesne Boulevard between Stanwix and 7th Streets. The festival expansion is intended to allow for larger vendor spaces, easier access to the diverse range of products and many free samples.
