StrEAT Festival

About the Festival

The Downtown CDC organizes the annual Highmark's International StrEAT Festival. The Festival will span across two weekend days and will be located between Stanwix and 7th Street on Penn Avenue. The streets will be lined with vendors from all over the Southwestern Pennsylvania Region. In addition, we will have stage performances, eating contests, raffles, games, cooking demonstrations, and much more!


Highmark's International StrEAT Festival will bring a vibrant event to Downtown that will not only benefit the community but be a place where you, your family and friends can learn more about the rich Cultural Heritage that has long been a part of Southwestern Pennsylvania. All are welcome!


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is still in its planning stages. Keep checking in with for updates.
