“We are looking forward to welcoming Pittsburghers and visitors from far and wide as we transform Downtown Pittsburgh into Picklesburgh,” said Jeremy Waldrup, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, the organization that produces Picklesburgh. “We have been hard at work on the design of the new festival footprint to ensure the event continues to be a success and an enjoyable experience for all who attend.”
