This popular annual event showcases Riverview Park, an urban oasis just north of Downtown Pittsburgh that is home to the landmark Allegheny Observatory as well as an extensive network of trails enjoyed by hikers, joggers and horseback riders alike.

During the Heritage Day celebration, explore nature by viewing rare birds from the National Aviary, meeting furry friends from the Animal Rescue League and Humane Society and discovering something unique and absolutely cool at the Carnegie Science Center booth – to name just a few of the day’s many activities!
