So, What's the Big Dill? 

Pickles are, obviously, the highlight of the event, but the celebration goes beyond our vinegar-ed friends. Try some dill-ightfully prepared food and drinks, and be sure to check out a variety of themed souvenirs and gifts including: 

  • Pickles and assorted pickled veggies
  • Pickled peppers and hot sauces
  • Pickle cocktails 
  • Pickle beer
  • Pickled items (obviously)
  • Recipe Books
  • Pickle themed merchandise 
  • Pickle-centric jewelry

Let your imagination run wild, you'll soon find out everything can be pickled! 

Of course any festival needs entertainment, and Picklesburgh is no exception. A proper Picklesburgh weekend wouldn't be complete without entertainment! Live music, pickling and cooking demos, children's games and of course the fan favorite Pickle Juice Drinking Contest

We're sure you'll have a dill-lightful time and fall in love with Pittsburgh when you come to Picklesburgh!
