Downtown Pittsburgh has been home to the Festival since 1960. The Festival footprint is comprised of three main locations, which span about one mile:
Point State Park: Known around the world for its iconic fountain at the confluence of Pittsburgh’s famed three rivers – the Allegheny, Ohio, and Monongahela – Point State Park is a gorgeous and must-see destination even before it becomes home to some of the Festival’s major attractions each June.
Cultural District: A project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, non-profit producer of the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival, the Cultural District is home to Pittsburgh’s dynamic art and entertainment scene and serves as a national model for urban redevelopment through the arts with world-class theaters, cutting-edge art galleries, restaurants galore, and more.
Gateway Center: Picturesque and nestled between Point State Park and the 14-block Cultural District, Gateway Center features plazas with a sparkling fountain, towering trees, and breezy walkways amid four prominent office buildings in addition to being a gathering point for the Festival’s Artist Market, Second Stage, and more.
