Special Events

While the PDP plans and implements many special events throughout the year, our two largest events define Downtown Pittsburgh throughout the Holiday Season. Comcast Light Up Night® occurs the Friday prior to Thanksgiving and heralds the beginning of the Holiday Season. Peoples Gas Holiday Market™ is a month-long market featuring more than 20 vendors offering hand-crafted and imported gift items, daily entertainment and Santa’s Downtown Pittsburgh home. For more information on each event, please visit the links on the menu to the left.

In addition to the Holiday activities that activate Downtown, we were thrilled to introduce Pittsburgh to Picklesburgh, a culinary celebration that goes beyond the dill pickle! First held in July of 2015 on the Rachel Carson Bridge, Picklesburgh brought international dishes, prepared foods, an embrace of the farm-to-table movement, DIY demos, and more to thousands of Pittsburghers. Check back soon for more information on Picklesburgh 2017!
