FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Pittonkatonk 2024: Pittsburgh's ONLY GLOBAL MUSIC Festival Returns for 11th Annual Celebration!!! Pittsburgh, PA - Pittonkatonk proudly announces its return for the 11th annual celebration of music, community, and activism. On Saturday, May 11, 2024, the Pittonkatonk May Day Festival will once again be held at the Vietnam Veterans Pavilion in Schenley Park, marking a day-long extravaganza of global music, international food vendors, social and environmental justice activism. As Pittsburgh's only world music festival, Pittonkatonk stands as a beacon of diversity and unity, offering a unique blend of musical acts and community engagement.

Entering its milestone 11th year, Pittonkatonk has evolved from its roots as a branch of the Honk festivals to become an indispensable platform for cultural exchange. This year's lineup features an eclectic array of performers from Puerto Rico, Congo, Colombia, Palestine, Poland, Canada, and beyond, reflecting the festival's commitment to showcasing the rich tapestry of global music. In lieu of the traditional potluck, this year's festival will feature an enticing selection of international food vendors, offering tantalizing culinary delights from around the world. The festival is open to all ages and works to be entirely sustainable with support from PRC for composting, recycling, and landfill sorting, Zero Fossil with renewable energy, bike parking provided by Bike Pgh, and New Sun Rising’s commitment to sustainability.
