Marking the kickoff to the holiday season, Pittsburgh's annual Comcast Light Up Night celebration returns on Friday, November 22, 2019 for an even bigger night of free, festive, holiday fun!
Plan your excursion to Pittsburgh to experience a full night of vibrant activities and events, including concerts from national and local artists, extraordinary firework displays, family activities, the seasonal opening of Pittsburgh's winter attractions, the spectacular illumination of the Golden Triangle and more! With so much to experience, there's no better place to start the holiday season than in downtown Pittsburgh.
While we wait for more details to come out about this year's celebration, here's what we know now:
PPG Plaza features a musical ice performance by RMU Island Sports Figure Skaters at 4:45 and East End Kids at 5p.m., leading up to the American Cancer Society’s Tribute of Light Ceremony and the lighting of the Plaza Tree by a young cancer survivor at 5:30p.m. All of this is followed by guitarist Byron Nash playing the upbeat sounds of the season.
Marking the official start to Pittsburgh's holiday season, the city's cherished holiday attractions also re-open on Light Up Night! In Market Square, you'll find the picturesque Peoples Gas Holiday Market. Inspired by the original German Christkndlmarkts, the Holiday Market features national and local vendors housed in vintage, wooden chalets selling one-of-a-kind holiday gifts and remains open until December 23.
