Not to worry about getting your grub on.

One of our favorite parts about A Fair in the Park is its family-friendly activities for the kiddos. The event sponsors are happy to encourage teaching young kids the power of art and music by presenting several hands-on activities. Check out the Blick Art booth, the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and Media booth, Calliope and many more!
This event is absolutely one you won’t want to miss! A Fair in the Park is a celebration of culture, talent, and one the whole family will enjoy.
