FREE EVENTS ARE BACK THIS FALL!

RADical Days 2022 will include more than 75 free events and experience at more than 60 entities that receive RAD funding, running from Friday, September 9 through Sunday, October 16.

Allegheny Regional Asset District

The Allegheny Regional Asset District – RAD – invests in Allegheny County's quality of life through financial support of libraries, parks and trails, arts and cultural organizations, regional attractions, sports and civic facilities, and public transit.

With half of the proceeds from Allegheny County's additional one percent sales and use tax, RAD has invested more than $2 billion in our regional assets since its inception. An additional $2 billion has gone directly to the County and its 128 municipalities for property tax relief and local government services. RAD is a time-tested solution that works for the economy, for assets, for citizens, for municipalities – for all. RAD works here.
