August Wilson House
1727 Bedford Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15219
The annual August Wilson Birthday Celebration Block Party presented by Dollar Bank will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 30, in Pittsburgh's historic Hill District near Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson's childhood home at 1727 Bedford Ave.
The free, family-friendly party will feature more than 125 vendors, performances, a lip sync battle, dance, foam party and more surprises. Come early, and stay late!
This year's block party is extra special because it will kick off a year of festivities to celebrate the restoration and public unveiling of Wilson's childhood home, which is slated for summer 2022. Wilson, who died in 2005, would have turned 77 years old this year. Learn more at augustwilsonhouse.org.
