Christmas & New Year's Eve

Experience the best Pittsburgh has to offer by going to some local events. From the annual Comcast Light up the Night to the Highmark First Night Pittsburgh, you can celebrate from now until the New Year.

57th Annual Comcast Light Up the Night

What’s Comcast Light Up the Night going to offer this year? The lineup still hasn’t been announced yet, but you can expect excellent music from local and national artists. The bands will cover a ton of different genres, and there will be some family-friendly activities as well. The highlight has to be the unveiling of the city’s decorations and the fireworks. It almost feels like an old Christmas movie when you hear the oohs and ahs sprinkled throughout the crowd. You’ll feel like a little kid when you see all of the gorgeous lights and decorations.

It’ll take place on Nov. 17 in downtown Pittsburgh. Be sure to come by.

6th Annual Peoples Gas Holiday Market

It’s not Christmas in Pittsburgh without the Peoples Gas Holiday Market. Comcast Light Up the Night is the official kick-off for the market. The Holiday Market is essentially a Christmas shopping village. It’s located in Market Square and has all of the holiday gifts and décor you could want. You can also get your photo taken with Santa and enjoy entertainment.

The market is open from Nov. 17–Dec. 23.

Highmark First Night Pittsburgh

Ring in the New Year Pittsburgh style at Highmark First Night Pittsburgh. There’ll be art performances, live music, and family-friendly activities. You never know what will be going on.
