What to do this week in Pittsburgh: June 3-9, 2018

From birding to blacksmithing.

Rossilynne Culgan

Two major festivals are taking center stage in Pittsburgh for the next two weeks: Pittsburgh Pride and the Three Rivers Arts Festival. Both offer an array of activities to keep you busy all week.

If you still have some free time, get outside, shop-til-you-drop or learn about amazing astronomy.

This weekend, plan to help out an important cause in Homewood, make a terrarium or check out some live music. Then, top it off with some fun at Make Sure You Have Fun™.
