Pittonkatonk 2024

Tax deductible
Help support Pittonkatonk's 2024 Event in Schenley Park.

We need your support to help cover travel and housing for performers.

Also each year the cost to produce the event increases, from staging, lighting, artist fees, permits, insurance, porta potties, etc.

If we were to charge the cost per person would be close to $100 per person. But we dont. We hope that you will help pay it forward.

Our actual goal is $8,000 but we would be happy with $5000.

11 years ago an idea crossed my mind to create Pittsburgh's version of the Honk Festivals. The concept was to host a free community event that promotes cross-cultural music and food free of corporate sponsors and outside interest. It was an experiment in community programming with the hopes to bring together diverse groups of music and culture for a celebration in the park.

Now 11 years later the event has grown to welcome thousands of attendees and created partnerships and collaborations between performers, activists, and attendees.

This year as we celebrate 11 years of free programming we are asking for your support to help us cover basic production costs such as additional porta potties, lighting, band accommodations, and other programming expenses.

As our event continues to grow so does the budget. To keep it free and open to the public we look towards monetary donations from those who can afford to help out.
