Get ready for some fun, and lots of pickles, because Picklesburgh will once again be in Pittsburgh this summer!
Picklesburgh, a two-day festival the focuses on pickle-inspired food dishes from local restaurants, will take place on the 6th Street (Roberto Clemente) Bridge and will be held on Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29 this year. As was the case in the past, a very large, 35-foot-wide Heinz pickle balloon will be located on the bridge to help locate the festival.
This summer’s festival represents the third year in a row in which Picklesburgh will be held in Pittsburgh and it’s quickly become one of the most popular summer events in the city. Last year over 75,000 people attended the two-day festival and organizers expect even more people this year.
If you do plan on heading down to Picklesburgh this year, there will be plenty of interesting dishes for you to try. Last year’s favorites included a bacon-wrapped pickle, a Pickled Pepper Burger and even Dill pickle ice cream.
If pickles aren’t appealing to you though, there will still be plenty to do at the festival. This year’s event will feature live entertainment, cooking demonstrations from local chefs, and plenty of local products for you to purchase.
And, of course, there will be cash bar that will offer craft cocktails from local bartenders and beer.
