Spend the summer outdoors at the Allegheny Overlook, a brand new pop-up park along Ft. Duquesne Boulevard highlighting community, arts, and culture while showcasing one of Pittsburgh’s most iconic views.
Look for Pittsburgh arts and cultural organizations to activate the Allegheny Overlook Stage with performances, food and drink vendors, larger-than-life games to enjoy, spaces for community, working, gathering, and more, to be announced soon. The new pop-up park highlights an underutilized space in the city’s urban core, making for a more vibrant Downtown as the city rebounds from the effects of the pandemic.
Find exceptional views of the Allegheny alongside the musical entertainment, where the food and drink will certainly not be overlooked. There will be a beer garden installation from Braddock based Brew Gentlemen – well known for their soft, balanced beers and flagship IPA, ‘General Braddock’s’. Made-to-order food items will also be available at the location.
Just Announced! Three Nights of Free Music!
