The Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival is free and open to the public June 1-10, 2018, from 12 – 8 pm each day. No tickets are required. It’s really free. Just show up and experience all kinds of art – from top-notch touring musicians and acclaimed visual artists to creative hands-on activities for children and showcases of the Pittsburgh region’s vibrant creative community.
Pittsburgh has been home to the Festival since 1960. The Festival footprint is comprised of three main locations, which span about one mile:
Point State Park: Known around the world for its iconic fountain at the confluence of Pittsburgh’s famed three rivers – the Allegheny, Ohio, and Monongahela – Point State Park is a gorgeous and must-see destination even before it becomes home to some of the Festival’s major attractions each June.
Cultural District: A project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, non-profit producer of the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival, the Cultural District is home to Pittsburgh’s dynamic art and entertainment scene and serves as a national model for urban redevelopment through the arts with world-class theaters, cutting-edge art galleries, restaurants galore, and more.
Gateway Center: Picturesque and nestled between Point State Park and the 14-block Cultural District, Gateway Center features plazas with a sparkling fountain, towering trees, and breezy walkways amid four prominent office buildings in addition to being a gathering point for the Festival’s Artist Market, Second Stage, and more.
