Festival celebrates Pittsburgh neighborhood food

September 11, 2017 by  

The 6th annual Hometown – Homegrown festival will be taking place next month in Pittsburgh, presented by the Heinz History Center and Good Taste! Pittsburgh.

This food exposition will be a celebration of the best foods of the various Pittsburgh neighborhoods. Guests will have the opportunity to sample many of these foods supplied by local vendors. There will be cooking demonstrations in the Kitchen Classroom by top chefs and live musical entertainment, while activities will be taking place on all five floors of the Heinz History Center.

Guests will also be able to sample a variety of spirits. A food marketplace is set to feature over 40 vendors so people can take home some of the food they sampled. In addition, there will be a cookbook exchange that will feature new cookbooks and well-known ones.

The festival offers a way to celebrate the unique dishes that are available throughout Pittsburgh and to introduce the public to some new suppliers. Organizers at this sort of event often invest in flyers or posters that can be displayed in various public buildings in Pittsburgh.

The Hometown – Homegrown festival will be held at the Heinz History Center on October 7 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and military, and $6.50 for students and children between the ages of 6 and 17. Contact Caroline Fitzgerald at 412-454-6373 to learn more.
