The Borough and Community of Carnegie is sad to announce that for 2012 the Carnegie Art and Heritage Festival will not be held.  After twenty-four years of local entertainment, food-court favorites and quality arts and crafts, it has been decided that a new direction is necessary in order to give the community and visitors a better Carnegie Experience.


To reflect on the past success of this festival, it is greatly important to thank all of the individuals who made this event run smoothly, which would include the committees, bands, vendors and countless other groups and individuals.  Without all of this support this festival would not have been made possible.


Please view this Press Release for further information.


The Festival Food Court



It's our 24th Annual Arts & Heritage Festival!

You’ll find food, music, fun and games on Carnegie’s Main Street again this September during Carnegie’s 24th Annual Arts & Heritage Festival.


In addition to three days of local rock, blues and alternative music Saturday afternoon is once again devoted to the Battle of the Bands. Five local bands will compete in the first ever Battle of the Bands for prizes of $500 and an official gig in next year’s festival.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements!

Visit the Music page for the complete schedule.


Visitors can stroll under the various tents and choose from a variety of original art and prints, handmade jewelry and ceramics and even handmade apparel. Visit the Creative Marketplace page to read about the artists who will be joining us.


The Family Fun and Entertainment Area, sponsored by Adventist Community Services – Greater Pittsburgh, will feature an exciting array of hands-on activities, games, events and more.  There will truly be something for everyone!  Check the Family Fun page for hours and information.


And on the community stage—well, we know you will find something you like. During the three days of the festival you’ll not only enjoy jazz, folk and alternative rock, but also belly dancers and student ballet dancers, plus klezmer, pop and a taste of the Chapman Stick. The schedule for these performers is also posted on the Music page.


For some people who frequent festivals, it’s all about the food and this year’s Food Court features everything from snacks to full meals representing over a half-dozen nationalities. Check the Vendors page to see what's cooking.
