Welcome to Pittsburgh! What do you want to do first? Not sure yet? Well what about plans for tomorrow? …Well you still have time to decide… Where are you staying? You haven't booked a hotel yet?!?!
10 Days of FREE, Music and Art – Only in Pittsburgh!
The iconic 10 days of free music and art that make up the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival are back with in-person and virtual events, June 4-13.
Live performances return to the Dollar Bank Main Stage in Point State Park with a great lineup. And, the Artist Market will feature 150+ independent artists in four outdoor locations with an additional 200+ more from around the country participating virtually. Read on for details.
June 4 | Celisse
June 5 | Bassel and the Supernaturals
June 6 | Rayland Baxter
June 11 | Sugaray Rayford
June 12 | Caroline Rose
June 13 | Son Little
Additional performances featuring the region’s top music and dance talent will perform on The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership’s Riverside Stage at Allegheny Overlook Pop-up Park, positioned on a partially-closed Fort Duquesne Boulevard between Stanwix and 7th Streets.
The open setting, in-person Artist Market will feature 150+ independent artists selling handmade fine art and crafts from noon-8 pm each day of the Festival. Each of this year’s four Artist Market locations will include two distinct sessions, meaning that you can discover new artists in the same spot when you visit a second time. Guests may encounter wait times during peak hours as Festival volunteers will monitor capacity-controlled areas.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust art galleries will reopen in tandem with the 2021 Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival. Venues include Wood Street Galleries, SPACE, 820 Liberty, 937 Liberty, and 707 Penn with open hours between noon and 8 pm. If necessary, a socially-distanced waiting line may be put in place to safely control capacity inside of each venue.
In addition to Cultural District long-term public art pieces, such as Magnolias for Pittsburgh, Cell Phone Disco, and FLOW, individual pieces will be on display specifically for the 10-day celebration, including a street mural by Janel Young.
Other in-person activities include the return of the Giant Eagle Creativity Zone and Story Corners, neither of which requires advance registration or tickets.
In-person and Virtual
The spectacular exhibition that showcases the exceptional talents and new art by regional artists returns in-person this year at 820 Liberty Avenue. Pieces will be on display throughout the Festival and the virtual exhibition, which includes photos, videos and even audio recordings from select artists, will also be available.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, producer of the Three Rivers Arts Festival, is accepting donations to keep the festival free and accessible for years to come.
