Garfield on the Go Walking Tour

July 21 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday, July 21
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

There’s an energy and “eye-appeal” along Penn Avenue in Garfield that’s captivating! Join staff members from the Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation and Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation for a late afternoon walk in the city’s Garfield neighborhood. Explore the eclectic business district, rooted in the arts and supportive of a diverse range of businesses and nonprofits, including Level Up Studios, Silver Eye Photography, Assemble, The Alloy Studios, Pittsburgh Glass Center, Boom Concepts, and more. You’ll also see public art, including “The Bride of Penn Avenue” mural, and sample some tasty food. The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation, in partnership with the Urban Redevelopment Authority, has had great success in developing and implementing revitalization strategies in consultation with community groups, residents, businesses, and government officials.
