Are you a fan of international food? Lively entertainment? Join the DowntownCDC this summer for Highmark’s International StrEAT Festival!

This June 1st & 2nd, Penn Avenue between 6th and 9th Street will be lined with authentic Italian vendors from the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. From 12 PM to 8 PM each day, take a walk through the festival and experience the tastes, sights, and smells! The festival will feature live shows by local Pittsburgh bands and performers, cooking demonstrations by local chefs, wine, a bocce court, raffles, kids activities, and much more!


Highmark’s International StrEAT Festival hopes to bring a vibrant summer event to downtown Pittsburgh that will not only benefit the community, but provide a place for Pittsburgh families and friends to learn more about the rich variety of cultures that have long been a unique part of Southwestern Pennsylvania. All are welcome to join in on the fun. Admission is free!
