Get the Details for This Year’s Shadyside SideWalk Sale

Strolling through the streets of Shadyside next week will be far from ordinary. Once a year, local businesses throw up signs and take their products to the streets to offer their best sales! Business owners get the chance to meet and engage with the community, while visitors get to enjoy a day full of discount shopping.

When, Where, and Everything in Between.

You get five days to explore Shadyside’s finest treasures from 10 am on Wednesday, July 24th to 7 pm on Sunday, July 28th. The Shadyside Chamber of Commerce will open up the streets for discount shopping during this year’s Annual Shadyside Sidewalk Sale! 

You’ll be able to spend a day or two walking along Walnut street, many of the side streets, and the Shadyside shopping district during regular business hours in search for deals. 

If you’re driving into Shadyside to join in on the shopping spree, look for the free 2-hour parking on residential streets off of Walnut, Ellsworth, and South Highland. If you’re still unsure, green permit signs will give you the information you need when parking. 

Keep an Eye Out for These Local Shops

The Annual Shadyside Sidewalk Sale is known for local shops to put up their best deals. We’re talking up to 80% off! 

It’s not a bad time to do some early holiday shopping if you ask us since over 40 local businesses are participating this year. You’ll find deals on the latest fashion, a pair of shoes, gorgeous jewelry, and everything in between. You’re bound to find a few gifts for the people you care about. Maybe even one or two for yourself too.

Here are a few local shops on Walnut Street that you should keep an eye out for.

Spend Fourth of July Weekend in Shadyside

Nothing says Happy Birthday America more than a weekend full of Yinzer-worthy Fourth of July celebration events like the annual Flashes of Freedom firework display! But who says the celebration stops after the grand finale?

We rounded up a few events that are taking place right here in our backyard in Shadyside this weekend. 

Whether you’re looking for a night out meeting new people and exploring Pittsburgh’s art scene or wanting to just enjoy spending time with loved ones for a Sunday brunch picnic in the park, here are three events you’ll want to go to this Fourth of July weekend. 

Red, White, and Blue Grass

Summer Fridays at The Frick are a community staple. It’s a relaxing scene of music, good food, and family. What better way can you enjoy the Fourth of July weekend? 

The Casual Hobos will take the stage on Friday, July 5th. Between 6:30 and 9 pm on the North Lawn, this group of Pittsburgh native musicians will play traditional bluegrass. The Casual Hobos thrill audiences and transcend you into simpler times with their sound performing lesser-known songs to new covers of old Bluegrass standards.

Food trucks like Cousins Maine Lobster, La Palapa, Lone Wolf Grill, BRGR, Sinkers & Suds, and Sticklers are expected to make an appearance during this week’s Summer Friday event as well. 

July Unblurred – Penn Ave Art Crawl

If you’re more into the art scene, join friends, neighbors, new visitors, and long-time residents for the July Unblurred Penn Ave Art Crawl. 

This Friday night between the 4800 and 5500 blocks on Penn Ave, artists, and local business owners will be out and about spreading creative energy into the streets of Shadyside. At July Unblurred you’ll experience art in every form from photography and dance to painting and performances. 

Bach, Beethoven, and Brunch

After a few nights of spectacular firework displays and hours of celebration, you may want to finish the weekend with a calm brunch. 

WQED’s Bach, Beethoven, and Brunch in Mellon Park is the perfect, relaxing way to end an event-filled weekend. Pack a picnic basket for Sunday morning and bring the family out from 10:30 and noon to enjoy the wonderful sound of Quinta Voce Wind Quartet.  

Looking for more events happening during the summer months? Fill up your calendar with more local events going into August and September.

While this is a weekend to celebrate. It’s important our Pittsburgh friends and neighbors stay safe this weekend. There are a ton of activities and events happening across the city, so be sure to prepare a reliable way home before going out. 

Happy Independence Day!
