For three days, the community of Carrick was in the spotlight with the NEXT 3 Days event. Presented by the City of Pittsburgh, the URA and NEXTpittsburgh, N3D kicked off with a party on Friday night, September 15, under the Dairy District Pavilion. It continued the next afternoon with a street fest featuring great entertainment — from the fabulous Beauty Slap to the sweet performance by the tiny Bhutanese dancer — and delicious food from the local farmer’s market and Oh My Grill! food truck.

See the photos here of the Friday night kick-off event, the Saturday street fest and performances by Beauty Slap, the Tamburitzans, The Telephone Line and more. Read more about the diverse and welcoming community and about buying a house in Carrick.
