Taylor Swift already has a big reputation, and on June 17, she made Pittsburgh history for the largest attendance ever at Acrisure Stadium. The second date of the Pittsburgh stop of The Eras Tour brought 73,117 fans (and cooperative parents) to the former Heinz Field.

And Mayor Ed Gainey took to Instagram to rename Pittsburgh “Swiftsburgh” as a way of “recognizing the transformational superstar.”

Swifties crossed bridges and state lines to see her perform a 3 1/2-hour-long set on June 16 and 17, featuring hit songs spanning her releases over the past 15 years. The outfits were sparkly and red carpet-worthy and the joyful screams of her fans were heard across the river.

Yes, the traffic was intense. But the crowd was more controlled, more courteous and more covered in glitter than most arena shows in Pittsburgh.

From bracelet making to brunch, Taylor Swift-themed programming took over the city’s bars, restaurants, coffee shops and museums leading up to the shows.

If you’re ready for more, Adda Coffee & Tea House is hosting a Taylor Swift-themed high tea event on June 24. Get tickets here.

If you didn’t make it to the concert but you’re looking for the next best thing, Laser Taylor Swift at the Carnegie Science Center runs daily at 2 p.m. through Sept. 4.

And if you’re just trying to catch your breath from all of the Swiftmania, we recommend this online Taylor Swift-themed transformational breathwork journey, Breathe Now, on July 8, following the release of “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” on July 7.
