Celebrate Summer with These 3 Pittsburgh Food and Drink Festivals

Three food-and-drink festivals to celebrate the dog days of summer with beer, veggies, and wine right here in Pittsburgh.

Barrel & Flow Fest

The Stacks at 3 Crossings, August 12
It’s become a cliche with events to exclaim, “This year is better than ever!” But since its launch in 2018, Pittsburgh’s first Black craft-beer festival, formerly Fresh Fest, has only grown, expanded, and thrived. Through festival-exclusive collaborations with Black breweries, artists, and small businesses across the country, no two Barrel & Flow experiences are ever the same.

Pittsburgh VegFest

Allegheny Commons Park, August 5
This free, annual food festival offers cooking and food demonstrations and, of course, plenty of bites not derived from animals. Beyond the plate, enjoy live music, speakers, yoga sessions, and wellness vendors, helping turn that clean-eating mentality into a lifestyle.

Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival

Rivers Casino, August 20
Make sure to take advantage of the access to the unlimited buffet dinner. After trying out the large selection of whiskey, scotch, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, cordials and handcrafted cocktails at this premium distilled-spirits festival hosted by Pittsburgh Magazine, food is a must.
