Ramp up to summer with Made in PGH

From the SouthShore Riverwalk & Chalk Fest to the Southside Works Out: Summer Fitness Series, you’ll already have your calendar marked for a taste of summer, thanks to Made in PGH. You may even see a few podcast guests from episodes past, like Gabriella Salvucci or our friends from Riverlife! All of these events are free and open to the public:

In conjunction with Riverlife, SouthSide Works and Made in PGH, the SouthShore Riverwalk and Chalk Fest is a FIRST in Pittsburgh and is happening this Saturday during Memorial Day weekend from 2-6 p.m. Explore the best riverfront views in Pittsburgh while viewing world-class, color-blasted artwork along SouthSide Works. 21 chalk artists from 13 different states will be visiting our hometown to let their art speak for itself on the pavement with lively, interactive murals. Plus, enjoy local food trucks dishing out great eats while the artists draw.

Learn more about Riverlife from the latest #YaJagoffPodcast: Life Is ‘Boat’ A Dream At Riverlife and head down to enjoy food, beer and live art while doing good because a percentage of food and beverage sales from the festival will benefit Riverlife’s work to create, activate and celebrate Pittsburgh’s riverfronts.

Plus, enjoy outdoor FREE fitness with extra Made in PGH perks, too. Happening for seven weeks this summer, lace up those shoes with professional yet achievable, FREE classes presented by Made in PGH Southside Works Out. Did we mention they’re free, ya jagoff?!
