With the summer heat finally starting to cool down, the fall fair season is itching to get a head start. One of the first Pittsburgh fairs is the annual A Fair in the Park, running Sept. 7-9 in Mellon Park.

The annual free festival is offered rain or shine. Presented by the Craftsmen's Guild of Pittsburgh, the event features an eclectic collection of fine arts and crafts created by more than 100 regional and national artists. The one-of-a-kind pieces, made from a variety of different mediums, including glass, leather, ceramics, wood and metal, are available for purchase — or just for browsing.


If fine art isn’t your thing, the festival features two stages — a main stage and an acoustic stage — presenting live music from a diverse selection of local musicians. The main stage will feature acts throughout the entire weekend, while the acoustic stage will host acts Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Regardless of what you come for, come ready to eat. Dining options will include food trucks such as Mac & Gold Truck, PitaLand, Randita’s and South Side BBQ Company, and other local independent vendors.

A Fair in the Park runs from 1-7 p.m. Friday, 10a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.
