THANK YOU PITTSBURGH!!! IT WAS A GREAT YEAR!!!

IMG_1508

When we did the first Pittonkatonk in 2014, we weren’t sure what to expect or how it would happen. We had a small amount of money to bring some bands to town but that was about it. As we talked about it with friends we found more and more people excited by the idea and willing to help. During the event we were amazed at the outpouring of positive support, volunteerism, and energy.

 

IMG_1595This year we were dedicated to Pittonkatonk being dependent on grassroots community collaboration. Again we didn’t charge admission, sell anything or take corporate sponsors. We asked for your support and you answered the call. You brought food, drinks, and volunteered your time and energy. You helped plan, spread the word, raise money, and then clean up afterward.

We will be posting Photos and Videos in the next few days. Please check back or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. 

Here are some highlights from Pittonkatonk 2015:

  • We did a three-engagement outreach program with the UPrep 6-12 music program, which culminated in the band’s collaborative performance with What Cheer? Brigade.

  • Twice the amount of people came this year and the scene was fun and respectful.

 

  • The food table was amazing! We couldn’t believe how many folks brought incredible food to share.

 

  • Everyone helped in some way or another to keep the park clean and safe.

 

  • So many families and kids!

 

Thank you all,

 

Pete and Rich
