The Northside Comes Alive with Theater, Puppets, Rock, and Buskers
From Brighton Heights, Daniel Stiker organized the second annual Pittsburgh Fringe Festival to provide new and emerging artists the opportunity to showcase their talent by providing a venue with reduced financial barriers and increased exposure. The Fringe Festival moved to the Northside in 2015 and utilized venues including City of Asylum Performance Tent, Bistro-to-Go, Max’s Allegheny Tavern, New Bohemian space, and additional other sidewalks throughout Central Northside and East Allegheny-Deustchtown while the event marketing will utilize work by Art Institute student groups.
“We were able to bring together Northside Neighbors, artists, Northside businesses, and arts lovers together for one magical weekend,” said project leader Dan Stiker. “We partnered with several organizations including the City of Asylum to make our first year in the Northside a success!”
