RADical DAYS

RADical DAYS

September - November 2020

RADical Days is an annual THANK YOU to Allegheny County taxpayers with free events, programming, and activities at our regional assets. As with everything in 2020, this year's RADical Days is a little different, with a mix of virtual and in-person events happening September through November. Check back throughout the fall as more events will continue to be added!

Allegheny Regional Asset District

For 25 years, the Allegheny Regional Asset District – RAD – has invested 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 over $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.
