2024 Spring Hat Luncheon

SCHENLEY PARK SATURDAY, MAY 4, 2024

Don't miss this opportunity to be part of a cherished Pittsburgh tradition, where fashion meets philanthropy in the most picturesque setting imaginable.

On Saturday, May 4, Schenley Park will serve as the beautiful backdrop to the 2024 PNC Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Spring Hat Luncheon. Join us for a day of grace, glamour, and greenery as we celebrate the arrival of spring in the heart of stunning Schenley Park. The annual Spring Hat Luncheon is a dazzling affair that seamlessly fuses sophistication with the splendor of nature.

Indulge in a delightful luncheon amidst the lush surroundings of one of the city's most iconic locations, where each table is adorned with the vibrant colors of the season. Be prepared to be captivated by the breathtaking beauty of nature, complemented by the stylish array of hats that grace the occasion. From chic fascinators to classic wide-brimmed hats, our guests showcase their unique style while supporting a cause close to our hearts.

Since the PNC Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Spring Hat Luncheon was founded in 1999 by Ritchie Battle and Audrey Hillman Fisher, with support from Teresa Heinz, the event has provided more than $11 million in direct support of Pittsburgh’s magnificent park system. This event is not just a feast for the senses—it's a celebration of community and commitment to preserving the natural treasures of Pittsburgh. Proceeds from the Spring Hat Luncheon directly ensure the ongoing care and enhancement of our beloved green spaces.

Interested in becoming a committee member? Hat Luncheon Committee members are vital supporters of the event and demonstrate that the well-being of our city’s public parks is a priority. For more information on becoming a member of this year’s Committee, please email Sophie Gage at sgage@pittsburghparks.org.
