The best Pittsburgh pickle gifts from local artists 

In honor of Picklesburgh, we bring you the best pickle gifts from Pittsburgh

One of the things I’ve been eating more of this summer is pickles. (Thank you Costco, for inspiring me to buy a bucket of pickles.)

Sadly, Picklesburgh, the annual Pittsburgh festival of pickles will not be held this summer. Picklesburgh is an annual event that is organized by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership and has been voted “Best Specialty Food Festival in America” by the readers of USA Today.

Instead of the full Picklesburgh festival, a few downtown Pittsburgh restaurants will be offering a "Taste of Picklesburgh" this summer.

Watch Seth Rogan make pickles in Pittsburgh

So it's pretty obvious we're not gonna be able to eat pickles together on a bridge this year. 😭 But we *can* all watch this new trailer of the Pittsburgh-filmed movie 'An American Pickle' that just dropped.

Wait, what, Seth Rogan? Pickles? Pittsburgh? Yes. Last year, Seth Rogan was in Pittsburgh filming the movie An American Pickle. The movie will debut on HBO Max on Aug. 6.
