Bloomfield Saturday Market Events!

Hey, Hustlers!

We've been working on an amazing partnership with the Bloomfield Development Corporation to do their Saturday Markets!

The First Saturday of every month we will be on Liberty Ave in Bloomfield between Gross & Winebiddle.  There is a very large area.  Your spaces are 10x10.  You will need to bring your own tables and tents (if desired.  Weights, not stakes).  This is rain or shine.  

June 6th
August 1st
September 5th
October 3rd 

Apply on our website and list which dates you want.  Spaces are $35 single, $20 double-share.  NOTE:  We can't have any more than 50% of our vendors sharing a table, so adjustments may need to be done.  This is a HUGE discount from what you would normally pay/commit to from the BDC.  SSC hustles!

Those who sign up will receive a waiver via email, which will need to be completed and returned, along with a deposit, for confirmation of spots.

Hurry up!  This is going to book up fast!

For Immediate Press Release

For Immediate Press Release:

Spring It On! is our first inaugural event celebrating Spring and Community in Pittsburgh, to be held in Lawrenceville’s Arsenal Park each spring.  This FREE to the public event is a joint venture between Second Shift Crafters and The Steel City PizzaFest, and is in partnership with The Lawrenceville United Community Group, Lawrenceville Corporation's Blossom Tour, and The Friends of Arsenal Park Committee.  Picnic blankets and camp chairs encouraged!

Join us on May 9th, between Noon and 6pm in Arsenal Park for an amazing day in the park!  It’s a great day for everyone, and is family-friendly.  Plenty of space for everyone to listen to music, shop local artists, eat some sweets, and experience the best pizza in the Burgh!  This event is Rain or Shine.

It features six hours of the best bands in the Pittsburgh area.  Blues, Roots Rock, Modern Rock and more performances including The Pressure, The Bessemers, Devon Moses and The Saved, The Turpentiners, and Molly Alphabet.  There will be a second stage featuring acoustic local musicians and spoken word artists, including GRLHood. 

Pizza vendors include Spak Bros, Pizza Parma, Calente, Angelo's, Grazziano's, Pessaro's, Hambones, and Cattivo. We will also have sweets from Pgh Crepes and Pittsburgh PopStop.  This is going to be delicious!

There will be more than 50 local crafters and artists, showing their wares.  There will also be craft activities for the kids!

Plus a Ms. PizzaBurgh contest, Dough Throwers, and the People’s Choice "Best Pizza".
Second Shift Crafters, founded in 2014, believes that everyone - not just those who earn their living from their hobbies and crafts - deserves a space to exhibit their goods to the public. Born of the hustling mindset, Second Shift Crafters pledges to keep their vendors as local as possible, with an emphasis on those who hold day jobs and create art in their spare time. In addition to local art and crafts, Second Shift Crafters partners with and supports Pittsburgh-based community organizations, mobile food and treats, independent breweries, and craft spirit companies. No matter what your day job, Second Shift Crafters is there for you.  We don’t profit from our events, we are just here to organize fun, and create partner networks!

Steel City Pizzafest is run by local promoter and dynamo Michael Devine, otherwise known as DJ Zombo, it is Pittsburgh’s first free to the public Music and Pizza Festival.   It’s a great way to promote some of the best local Pizzas in town.  So, Pizzafest is similar to a Rib Burn off… but with Pizza.  And EVERYBODY loves pizza!

Working with Michael Devine and Mary Jo Coll, we've established the first annual event, "Spring It On!", an annual local Pittsburgh event bringing together food, artists, musicians, and crafters, all having an amazing groovy day full of fun.

First and Foremost is that Spring It On! is the site of...

...The Steel City PizzaFest! It's Pittsburgh’s first Free to the Public Music and Pizza Festival. It features 6 Hours of the best bands in the Pittsburgh area. Blues, Roots Rock, Modern Rock and more.  All Family Friendly and in partnership with Lawrenceville United and  The Friends of Arsenal Park Committee.  It is Limited to 12 Pizza shops and restaurants in the area.  (Lawrenceville, Bloomfield, Garfield, East Liberty, Millvale and The Strip... Accepting Pizza shop applications now).  It’s a great way to check out some of the best Pizzas in town.  Kind of like a Rib Burn off..only with Pizzas.
