ABout the Festval
Pittsburgh's 2019 Sunday Best Bloody Mary Festival
The first of it's kind in the city to celebrate the beloved brunch cocktail
For the past hundred years, the Bloody Mary has been a fixture at brunch tables across the country. On Sunday, January 27, we’re making it the main event.
Join us downtown at the Pennsylvanian for a one-of-a-kind festival celebrating the Bloody Mary in all its glory. There you’ll sample unique variations on the classic cocktail from 14 local bars and restaurants, with a chance to cast your vote for Pittsburgh’s Best Bloody.
Whether you like it spicy or sweet, straight up or garnished to the brim, there will truly be something for everyone, with additional offerings from Eleventh Hour Brewing, Strange Roots Experimental Ales, Arsenal Cider, and Red Ribbon Soda. Plus, we’ll have some of your favorite local vendors on hand offering light brunch fare, with a DJ and photobooth to round out the Bloody Mary-ment.
Your General Admission ticket gets you 10 sampling tickets to use between noon and 3pm, or go VIP for an extra hour and unlimited sampling opportunity. Want to make a day of it? A limited number of Super Sunday Funday VIP tickets are available and include a pre-fest brunch & free Bloody at Luke Wholey's Alaskan Grill, last year's Best Bloody Mary winner. Designated Drivers are also welcome to participate in the festivities for a discounted price.
Pittsburgh's best local bars and restaurants will come together to provide guests with samples of their house-made Bloody Mary mix and best garnishes!
