Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival 2017

You think you know pierogies?  The delicious dumpling filled with pillowy potatoes, cheese, sauerkraut and other goodness!  What about a pierogie waffle topped with fried chicken?  Falafel pierogies?  Perhaps a pierogie dessert like The Masked Pierogie – a brown sugar potato cake filled with salted caramel topped with chocolate ganache, potato chip dust, swiss buttercream and a masked potato chip.

Come celebrate all things pierogie because the Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival is back!  Farm to Table Western PA will be representing, and helping with the potato sack race!

Join us on September 24, 2017 from 1pm-6pm at Kennywood Park for the ultimate in hometown Pittsburgh food and fun! The annual celebration of the #CityofDumplings will feature our city’s favorite food from over two dozen restaurants, chefs, and pierogi purveyors who will be serving up hot and delicious pierogies, creative pierogi-inspired dishes, dessert pierogies and more!

As you make your way through Kennywood Park, hop on some classic rides open to our guests special for the day, paint your own pierogi with Paint Monkey and shop the pop-up Pierogi Marketplace for everything from pierogi t-shirts and clothing, to jewelry and pottery, to Festival keepsakes and Pittsburgh memorabilia.
