The site will also be packed with vendors selling anything pickle-related you can imagine. Think relishes, pickled green beans and banh mi pork kielbasa. If that isn’t enough, a vendor called I’Dill Pickles will be selling “piggles,” bacon-wrapped fried pickles.
Finally, Heinz, the event’s sponsor, will unveil two new flavors for the first time in 50 years. Picklesburgh attendees will each get to try Spicy Garlic Chips and Sweet & Spicy Chips and then cast their vote for their favorite.
To get you amped about the festival, here’s a fun fact whether you’re attending or just tuning in from afar: According to Picklesburgh’s website, “Americans consume 26 billion pickles a year, which equals nine pounds of pickles per person.” See you in Pittsburgh.
