Making Your Parks Shine: Celebrating 25 Years of Parks

October 1, 2021

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 2, 2021


The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy is celebrating 25 years of improving, maintaining, and caring for the parks you love. The ever-changing climate of the COVID-19-era has made planning a traditional gala as we have held for previous anniversary celebrations impossible. Instead, we look forward to leaning into the opportunity to enjoy this milestone with anyone who wishes to join us. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary, on the evenings of October 1 and 2, 2021, the Parks Conservancy in partnership with LUXE Creative will install dramatic, dynamic lighting installations at six park locations across the City of Pittsburgh.

Known as “Making Your Parks Shine,” all six park spaces will be lit for both nights as we bring the sites to life with live local music and food trucks during one of the evenings. These celebrations will be free and open to the public.

Our goal is to highlight the Parks Conservancy’s work over the past 25 years; to honor our many donors, volunteers, and collaborators; and to celebrate the next 25 years with the greater Pittsburgh community.

Stay tuned for additional location and on-site activation details in the coming weeks!
