News Releases

PITTSBURGH—In honor of its 20th year, the Allegheny Regional Asset District and its funded assets are pleased to present the annual RADical Days event with free admissions, performances and special programming for 20 days this Fall.  20 RADical Days will run from September 24 to November 9, 2014.

“RAD and the regional assets invite you to enjoy 20 RADical Days as a thank you to the public for its annual support of regional libraries, parks, sports facilities and arts and culture programming,” said David Donahoe, RAD Executive Director.  “With nearly $1.5 billion invested in Allegheny County since 1994, RAD sales tax dollars have sustained and improved our regional assets which enhance our lives and communities and many ways.”

Since 1994, RAD has funded nearly 150 diverse regional assets, with users from not only the county and its surrounding areas, but from around the world.  

20 RADical Days will open on September 24th with free admission for tours of PNC Park, and conclude on November 9th at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.  In between there will be 18 more days of free admissions and programs at 35 other separate locations.   New events this year include the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater’s Centennial Celebration of its Regent Theatre with family entertainment; a hands-on workshop for teens to design and fabricate props and costumes for CLP-East Liberty’s Haunted House; a demonstration of ballet fundamentals by the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre at CLP-Hazelwood; and a presentation of The Felicia Lynn Band at the Shaler North Hills Library.

Assets are NOT offering free admission every day.  Check listings for each asset’s free date, times and limitations.  Admissions are first come-first served.  Some admissions require advance reservations or may have space limitations.  Parking fees might be charged at venue lots.  RADical Days events are open to all and accessible.  Visit the RADical Days page on RAD’s web site radworkshere.org for location addresses and other details.
