About the Cultural District Gallery Crawl
The third Gallery Crawl event of the year sponsored by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust will take place on Friday, July 10, from 5:30-9 p.m. in the Cultural District.
The Gallery Crawl features a variety of art and entertainment in the Cultural District. Music, interactive displays, film, architecture and comedy make the event perfect for diverse interests. Participation in the Gallery Crawl is free and open to all.
Over 20 galleries will be open for the event–attendees can start their crawl at any location. After the Gallery Crawl “officially” ends, a few after dark events will take place for anyone who wishes to stay out later. Cover charges may be collected and range from $5-10. Here’s a list of gallery and after dark locations.
To see where the various galleries can be found, check out the map on the Gallery Crawl webpage.
About the Night Market
Paired with the Gallery Crawl is the Night Market from 5:30-11 p.m. in the parking lots at the corner of Penn Avenue and 8th Street.
The Night Market, put on by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, brings pop-up shopping markets to the neighborhood that feature some of Pittsburgh’s most popular local vendors.
The Night Market will host a variety of goods, such as food, cocktails and beer, jewelry, art, apparel, home decor and more. These, paired with live music, make the Night Market a mini-festival for the evening!
The next Gallery Crawl and Night Market events will take place on September 25.
