Former teammates Jerome Bettis and Hines Ward will square off on opposing sides for a no-holds-barred competition connected to big news from Heinz and Picklesburgh….it promises to be a very big dill!

Additionally, hometown financial heavyweight BNY Mellon and Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership will team up for a preview of Picklesburgh Friday, July 15 & Saturday, July 16. All on the Rachel Carson Bridge.

Media will need to pay to park in Gold Lot 1 (entrance off of W. General Robinson Street). Please enter the stadium at Suite Entry B adjacent to Gate B along Art Rooney Ave. Then then take the elevator to the UPMC Club on the 2nd level.

Produced by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership and presented by Heinz, Picklesburgh is a culinary celebration that goes beyond the dill pickle to include international dishes and handcrafted foods from local chefs that house-cure pickled vegetables; informative how-to demonstrations, at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Demo area, that embrace the farm-to-table movement and the rising popularity of DIY canning; two full days of live music and pickle juice drinking contests on the BNY Mellon stage, fun pickle themed merchandise, and a “Li’l Gherkins” area with free activities. Picklesburgh also features the return of the 35-foot inflatable Heinz pickle, which was the social media darling that everyone wanted to snap a photo with last year! The event will be Friday, July 15 and Saturday July 16, with expanded hours from noon – 10:00 p.m. on both days. Craft beer will be available all during the Festival and, beginning at 5:00 p.m., several restaurants will offer a selection of artisan cocktails, many featuring pickled ingredients. Full details on the event are available on Picklesburgh.com.
