the crosstown cookout is back...
and better than ever.

For the past two summers the Crosstown Cookout at Pittsburgh's Mon Wharf has been the epitome of summer's last hoorah. Kick back, soak up the sun reflecting off the river, eat from your favorite food trucks, drink handcrafted cocktails and ice cold brews, check out local artists and vendors, and soak up  those last lazy summer vibes while you dance into the summer night.



We had so much fun in years 1 and 2, that this year... we've invited some of our friends to join in on the party planning. What does that mean for you? Well, this year... we're blowing the music lineup out of the water - pun intended - with a massive expansion in way of entertainment - with two stages full of a robust lineup of local DJs, as well as national party-rocking DJs. In addition, we're adding a vendor village for you to get your shop on, and the VIP area returns this year only this time with open bar. (What? Did someone say open bar!?)



Just about everything else! We are still all ages (21+ to drink of course). We will also continue to be dog friendly to all friendly dogs.

And most importantly, this event still is held to bring attention to Riverlife and their initiatives. Riverlife is a local nonprofit organization that works with Pittsburgh’s river fronts to transform wasted space into clean, safe, and enjoyable areas. Make sure you check out the Mon Wharf Switchback while you are at the event. The Mon Wharf Switchback Ramp is a Riverlife project currently under construction that will connect trail users using the Smithfield Street Bridge, Eliza Furnace “Jail Trail” and Great Allegheny Passage safely and smoothly down to the eastern end of the Mon Wharf Landing, a linear park along the Monongahela River in downtown Pittsburgh. The ramp will be ADA accessible and fully lit at night.


See You at the Wharf!
