Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival

When organizers were planning last year's inaugural Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival, they expected about 1,000 people to show up. They ended up with a crowd of more than 7,000. And it's no wonder, considering how highly the European dumpling ranks among the city's beloved foods. As Stephan Bontrager, one of the organizers of the fest, told the Post-Gazette in 2013, pierogis are "one of those Pittsburgh pride things."

Locals can once again show their love for the chewy concoctions at this year's fest, where there will be at least 15 vendors serving both traditional and contemporary versions. Perennial favorite Gosia's will be using a pierogi recipe handed down through generations of their Polish family, while Square Cafe will be giving attendees another chance to taste their coffee-spiked dumplings. There'll be plenty to do besides eat, of course. Other attractions include a beer tent (sponsored by Yuengling) and a pop-up market with handcrafted gifts such as pierogi earrings and toasty pierogi slippers.

Customer Reviews

Good food and good times. Get there early, best stuff sell out. Expect to long lines and always check weather, we forgot and it rained. I plan to go ago next year.

Great event with a lot of options/vendors. However, lines too long and undefined. Although I liked the location, a bigger venue may be best (?).

This was the second year for this event, and the pierogies were phenomenal! Braddock's was my family's favorite vendor. Highly recommend this event to anyone!
