The Hybrid Three Rivers Arts Festival is scheduled for June
The 2021 Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival will take place June 4-13 with virtual presentations and select personal attractions with limited capacity in the cultural district. There are no events at Point State Park or the Gateway Center. Details of online offers and personal celebrations that are free but require prior registration and timed entry will be announced shortly on the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s social media channels.
Hungry? Go downtown for great food
As part of the new Good Eat $ campaign, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership is offering a 25% discount on food and drink from participating restaurants on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout March. You can dine, take out or have your food delivered. Share the experience on social media and win gift cards, free meals and other prizes. A full list of participating restaurants can be found here.
The Tull Family Theater “holds your seat”
Sewickley Tull Family Theater is 15% busy due to Covid restrictions, but seats are still full. The nonprofit, film-driven arts organization sells cardboard clippings – such as those seen at sports and performance events on television – for $ 100 and places them in the theater’s two projection rooms. As part of the fundraising campaign, companies and individuals can sponsor a silhouette that will remain until January 1, 2022.
Visit new dinosaurs at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
The Carnegie Museum of Natural History has added five new residents to its exhibit Dinosaurs in Their Time. Examples include a fossil tylosaurus mosasaur skull and four replica skeletons: two fish, one pliosaur, and one plesiosaur. The latter is the only one of its kind, replica or otherwise, on display anywhere in the world.
Fundraiser for free HPV vaccines
On March 4, Pittsburgh-based Basic Health International (BHI) launched a month-long fundraiser to support free HPV vaccination clinics run by Allies for Health + Wellbeing and For Good PGH this spring and summer. HPV, or human papillomavirus, is the most common sexually transmitted disease. Multiple strains of the virus cause a variety of cancers, including cervical cancer and other diseases that can be prevented with a vaccine. Out of pocket costs of up to $ 250 make the vaccine unaffordable for many people. Donations to the BHI Free HPV Vaccine Clinic Partnership and Fundraising Initiative can be made online until April 11th.
Pool opening in Dormont
Let yourself be pampered this summer in the Dormont Pool. After a dry 2020 season, the pool will be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the following dates: June 12th to August 12th. 22, 28-29 August and 4th-6th September. The slide will be closed and Dormont Borough will not provide furniture, but the concession booth will be open.
Commemorative library cards
To mark its 125th anniversary, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh hired four local artists – Takara Canty, Cue Perry, DS Kinsel, and Janel Young – to create library cards based on the question, “What does free for the people mean to you?” . The commemorative cards are available to new and existing library card holders free of charge while stocks last.
