The holiday season is upon us, which means there are several holiday events in Pittsburgh. Whether you’re looking for a romantic event for a date or for a simply something fun to do with the whole family, there’s an event for nearly everyone. Here at Shults Ford Harmarville, we’ve put together a list of just a few of the many upcoming holiday events and activities in the area.
According to Visit Pittsburgh, there are a number of holiday performances in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. For example, the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre has an annual production of The Nutcracker, a holiday classic set to the music of Tchaikovsky. The Pittsburgh CLO also puts on a performance of A Christmas Carol every year, and the Symphony Orchestra will have Highmark Holiday Pops.
Next, check out the Peoples Gas Holiday Market. Held from November 17 to December 23, this market is designed like a quaint European village, yet it’s held in the heart of the Downtown’s Market Square. You can find holiday gifts from a long list of local vendors. There’s also hot apple cider and a range of local restaurants nearby for dinner.
Finally, visit the Highmark First Night Pittsburgh on December 31. This New Year’s Eve celebration is an arts-centered event held in the Cultural District. There will be live music, performances, ice sculptures, and more. An extravaganza that’s great for families, you can be a part of the 50,000 participants that will gather to see the ball drop in Pittsburgh. This is just one of the many fun things to do this winter in the area.
