If you’re lucky enough to live in or around Pittsburgh, you know the Cultural Trust is what keeps the arts alive and thriving in our great city. Pittsburgh’s Cultural District is impressive in its own right, but when you learn the story of how it was transformed from a forgotten piece of downtown into the heartbeat of the city, well you might get a little tear in your eye. Or maybe that’s just me.
Lauded as “the single greatest creative force in Pittsburgh because of its spirit of reinvention” by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, the Trust is the catalyst behind Pittsburgh’s thriving Cultural District that continues to enrich the region’s vibrancy and prosperity.
There’s always something fun going on downtown (or if you’re a true Yinzer, dahntahn) for kids to enjoy. One of my favorite events is returning this May for its 31st year, which is how old I’ll be on my next birthday!
The EQT Children’s Festival is brimming with incredible experiences for kiddos. Featuring fun stuff like traditional dance and garb from all over the world to a scavenger hunt through the Cultural District, the Children’s Festival is an interactive, educational, and gorgeous expression of art and togetherness.
