The Destination for all Things Pickled
July 17-18, 2015 – Rachel Carson Bridge (9th Street Bridge)
Event hours: Friday 7/17 3pm-10pm, Saturday 7/18 11am-10pm
For two days in July, the Rachel Carson Bridge in Downtown Pittsburgh will transform 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 the Whole Foods Market demo area; merchandise such as pickled goods, books and DIY products.
