Mattress Factory

The Mattress Factory
October 30
11 a.m. — 2 p.m.

Come Sunday, don’t take off that mask just yet: head to the Mattress Factory for the perfect round two of Halloween fun.

The latest edition of the museum‘s Breakfast in Bed series—dubbed “Eat, Drink + Be Scary”—the event combines international art and local cuisine to offer a refreshing new addition to Pittsburgh’s burgeoning brunch scene. Continue your Halloween revelry while enjoying exclusive access to the Mattress Factory’s world-renowned galleries before they open to the public.

Gastronomic delights will include a Bloody Mary concocted by Ustianochka Vodka, mimosas mixed up by Salúd Juicery, and seasonal beers from new Northside neighbor, the War Streets Brewery.

Brunch-goers can paint pumpkins with Soergel Orchards, and purchase delicious fare from Pgh Crepes, the Pgh Taco Truck and the Burgh Bites Cart.

Providing the day’s spooky soundtrack will be Pittsburgh-based DJ, Dave Zak.

Be sure to come decked out in your most eccentric Halloween getup, because ghouls from Pittsburgh’s own Hundred Acres Manor Haunted House will be on site choosing a winner for the “best ensemble” look. Roll up your costumed sleeves and get creative during hands-on, Halloween-themed activities led by the Mattress Factory’s Education Department.

Throughout the event, the museum’s permanent collections and special exhibitions of large-scale installation art at its Sampsonia Way and Monterey Street facilities—including Factory Installed and A Second Home—will be open exclusively to brunch guests.

Proceeds from the event will support the Mattress Factory’s artist residency program, exhibitions, public programs, and educational outreach.
