Pop up mini art festivals

You’ve probably been to a block party. You’ve probably been to an art festival. Combine the two and you get the P.R.I.D.E. Pop Up Mini Art Festivals, a free neighborhood event created specifically for Black children between the ages of 3 and 8. Trained artists and educators present exciting, engaging activities emphasizing Africana arts and culture that help Black children embrace their race, skin color, and heritage with dignity and love. Plus, there’s delicious food, live music, a DJ and host, dancing, and more for all to enjoy.

Currently held in the East Liberty, Homewood, and Hill District neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, the P.R.I.D.E. Pop Ups are one of the only festivals in the United States with programming designed specifically to young Black children aged 3 to 8. Pop Ups debuted in 2017 to crowds of hundreds eager to soak up Africana culture in the form of music, dance, and different artistic expressions. In 2018, we more than doubled attendance. We are eager to see what 2019 brings!
