Polish Hill Arts Festival features food, music & Pittsburgh’s poetess

The 12th annual Polish Hill Arts Festival includes a performance by Pittsburgh’s Poetess, Rachel Ann Bovier and local bands, as well as some of our favorite food vendors (Leona’s, Cinderlands, Pittsburgh Sandwich Society and more)

If we were giving out awards for the most beloved neighborhood in Pittsburgh, it might be Polish Hill. You can see why this neighborhood is so awesome, and the residents love it so much at the Polish Hill Arts Festival on Sunday, July 21, 2019.

The festival takes place in the heart of Polish Hill at the corner of Brereton and Dobson Streets. Stop by for live music and food from some local favorites.

This is the 12th year for the Polish Hill Arts Festival. One of the things I’ve always liked about the Polish Hill Arts Festival is that it was started to complement the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church Festival.  (Immaculate Heart of Mary is the big, iconic Polish church in the middle of the neighborhood.) While the church is no longer holding a summer festival, the Polish Hill Arts Festival continues to be a community-building event for the neighborhood.
