News Releases

Get ready for RADical Days 2013, when nearly 50 of the region's favorite cultural assets will open their doors and entertain the public, all at no charge.

RADical Days, an annual event now in its 12th year, is sponsored by the Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD) and its funded assets to thank the public for the sales tax funds that support the region's parks, libraries, sports and civic facilities and programs, and arts and culture organizations.  This year, there will be 54 free admission events, accessible to the public, and more than a dozen arts organizations offering music, dance, visual arts and theater experiences.

"Through the dedicated sales tax, RAD is investing in the programs and facilities of our libraries, parks, sports and civic facilities, and arts and culture programs.  This investment continues to make Allegheny County a cultural and recreational leader in the country," said David L. Donahoe, RAD Executive Director.  "RADical Days is a great opportunity for the public to see their investment up close, at no cost."

RADical Days 2013 will open on September 21 with free admission at the Frick Art & Historical Center, and conclude on November 10 at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.  Read the rest of the release, including the full RADical Days schedule (in pdf).
