Noon to 6 p.m.

With 10 days of free art, music, theater and dance, the 58th annual Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival has something for every family.

Back with expanded programming in both Point State Park and Gateway Center, the festival’s Giant Eagle Creativity Zone is a dynamic must-do destination for kids, where the youngest makers can participate in hands-on activities and demonstrations led by Pittsburgh’s top arts and cultural organizations.

Roll up your sleeves in the Pittsburgh Sound Playground as you add musical designs and patterns to a public art installation, and visit Reuse-a-Palooza to experiment with reclaimed materials and techniques with Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse.

Master 3D printing and laser engraving with TechShop and BoXZY, make wearable electronic art with Assemble, and design silkscreen-inspired prints like Andy Warhol.

Make 18th-century cup and ball toys, American flags and tin punch ornaments with the Fort Pitt Museum, and discover the fun side of vocabulary words during Buzzword Pittsburgh activities.

Relax with The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s StoryCorner as you enjoy a comic Yiddish folk tale and puppet show, explore Afro-Caribbean music and dance, express your feelings with percussion, and more.
