It’s true, we devote an entire weekend to pickles. The tagline of this festival is “What’s the big dill?” The Clemente Bridge transforms into “Picklesburgh” and a highlight is a giant flying Heinz pickle balloon (by the same guys who do Macy’s and Disney parades). Enjoy a culinary celebration of prepared dishes, artisan cocktails and more. July 28-29th, more information HERE.

3. Pittsburgh Comedy Festival
