Join us at the historic Carrie Furnaces as we celebrate this inaugural event. Featuring special urban art tours, live music and food that showcases the history and culture of the Mon Valley.
Mon Valley Sizzles will expose all of Pittsburgh to the vibrant non-profits that are making a difference to feed the hungry, provide scholarships for higher education, support young persons in need, promote educational resources and help bring health-related services to many that cannot afford them.
Have fun with us as the Mon Valley Sizzles!
A town rich in culture and regional flair, Pittsburgh is one of the best cities to see buskers, entertainers who perform a variety of talents in public locations for gratuities. While the city’s busking scene is still rather small, it is certainly big on talent. From artists to musicians and even magicians, there is no shortage of street performers who know how to draw a crowd. If you’ve never seen busking, enjoy multiple performances throughout the event.
Quench your thirst and feed your soul with Mon Valley Sizzles’ Flavors of the Valley featuring Pittsburgh’s top food trucks including Midnight Munchies, Rogue Barbecue, Fire Fries, Revival Chili and Iron Oven. A wide variety of beer will be available by Yeungling. Wines and signature spirits will also be available from Blue Dust.
Most vendors will accept credit card and debit; however, an ATM will be on site for your convenience.
Gates will open at 3:00pm.
Guests 21 and over will need a valid ID produced at the gate to receive a wrist bracelet to purchase alcoholic beverages. Bartenders may ask for ID’s even though a wristband is being worn.

For the last three decades, towns and cities in the Mon Valley have experienced economic deterioration. Once considered an industrial powerhouse, these towns have suffered the loss of retail and business to sites located in larger shopping centers and commercial strips. In light of these devastating changes, the Chamber Organization (formerly the Regional Business Alliance [RBA], Board of Directors established a 501© (3) foundation to support economic growth, provide educational scholarships and support programs in hope of revitalizing our towns and cities in the Mon Valley.
In light of this commitment, The RCA has created Mon Valley Sizzles, the premier event in the Mon Yough Valley that will celebrate the spirit of our community and history of our partner non-profits.
