News Releases

PITTSBURGH—The region’s annual celebration of organizations funded by the Allegheny Regional Asset District will begin on September 18th and conclude on October 9th, with new events and special discounts. Now in its 15th year, the RADical Days event features free admissions and activities sponsored by the Allegheny Regional Asset District and its funded assets to thank the public for the sales tax funds that support the region’s libraries, parks, sports and civic facilities, and arts and culture organizations. Since 1994, RAD has provided more than $1.6 billion in grants to regional assets.

“RADical Days is a special opportunity to explore the outstanding art, music, dance, drama and cultural facilities represented by our diverse regional assets,” said Dusty Elias Kirk, RAD Board chair. “RADical Days have always been fun and free – but this year they’re fantastic times 15 with the special discounts being offered by select assets.”

To celebrate the 15th year of the RADical Days event, 15 organizations are offering special discounts to the public to continue the RADical Days spirit. These include:

- Avonworth Community Park: 15% discount off of the Mayernik Center or Cabin Rental for the rest of the 2016 season;

- Carnegie Museums: 15 months of membership for the price of 12 when purchased onsite during any of the museums’ RADical Days events;

- New Horizon Theater: Seniors (65 and older) receive 15% off $40 tickets for the production of Kings of Harlem;

- River City Brass Band: $15 tickets for any performance of September’s Some Enchanted Evening or October’s Haunted Classics;
