This year’s Pickle Juice Drinking Contest, presented by the Pittsburgh Pickle Co. and hosted by YaJagoff! is going to be a big dill… it’s already packed to the jar! 

Preregistration for the Pickle Juice Drinking Contest is already packed to the briney brim for Picklesburgh 2022. Each year, pickle juice fanatics compete to down a quart of pickle juice the fastest to be named the Mayor of Picklesburgh. Last year, John B. of Pittsburgh, won the heated championship round in approximately 6 seconds after two days of preliminary contest rounds.

If you did not get a chance to pre-register, we’ve got a silver lining of news to pucker: completing the preregistration form DOES NOT guarantee participation. You must be 18 years old to compete – see full rules and regulations here. 

 Contestants will compete in ten preliminary rounds on Friday, July 15, and Saturday, July 16, with winners of each round moving on to compete in the championship round on Sunday, July 17. The winner of the championship round will be honored as the 2022 Mayor of Picklesburgh and receive a prize of $500! 

Walk-up entries may be available as space allows the days of the festival, with a raffle drawing taking place 15 minutes before each round to award walk-up competition slots.
