Multiple venues
April 1923
Various times

An exhibition featuring work made by top Pittsburgh artists . . . when they were in high school. Fifteen breweries and two rock bands on the Gateway Clipper. A dance party for people who can’t stay awake past 10 p.m.

If one or all of these sounds appealing, then you’ll love the third annual FULLTIME festival.

Staunchly open-sourced and locally produced, the five-day happening will set up shop in unique spaces and places throughout the Burgh—from artists’ studios to taprooms to warehouses.

Showcasing a wide range of creative enterprises, the crowd-sourced festival highlights independent Pittsburgh-based artists, designers and small business owners.

Discover how a simple coffee date can kickstart your own creative endeavors, learn to take an effective headshot, and view a display of locally made t-shirts. Show off your moves at a Troika skateboard competition, and attend the launch of a new product line for kids at White Whale Bookstore.

Festival-goers can also go behind-the-scenes to experience artistic projects underway, hone new skills, and connect with experts in a range of business development areas.
