EVERYONE is welcome at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival! Read on to see how we’re making your visit more comfortable:

  • Walk-ability
    • Carrie Furnace is an historic and raw space. We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes as some areas of the grounds are uneven.
  • Scooter Rentals
    • We are proud to partner with Rite Way Mobility who will be providing on site scooter rentals at the Festival. You can reserve a scooter upon arrival but we highly suggest making your reservation in advance by emailing them at service@ritewaymobility.com or calling at 724-407-0713. Rentals are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Rentals are $25 for the day.
  • Parking Lot Shuttle
    • The venue has accessible parking right near the main entrance. We also have a golf cart shuttle available in the parking lots.
  • Sensory Bags
    • The Festival will have sensory bags from Kulture City available at the front gate for use during the event. The sensory bags are designed to help sensory needs in both adults and children. They are filled with items like headphones and fidgets that can help lessen sensory overload and create engagement. Rentals of these bags during your visit are free of charge but we will keep a credit card on file and charge only if the bag is not returned at the end of your visit. These bags are available free of charge thanks to a grant from the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council.
  • Dietary Restrictions
    • The team at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival is highly aware of the important of addressing food allergies and accommodating special dietary needs.
      • Guests are permitted to bring in one factory sealed plastic bottle of water
      • Our food vendors are educated in avoiding cross contact of foods whenever possible
      • Gluten free food and beverages (including alcohol) are available
      • Vegan and vegetarian options are available.
      • We do not guarantee that there will not be cross contact of foods with our vendors but highly encourage to discuss the options and your allergies with our food vendors.
  • Baby Care
    • We love to see the youngest generation at the Festival! Visit our Baby Care Tent for shade, private nursing location, diapers, wipes, changing pads, etc. Only visitors with babies and tender aged children will be permitted in this area.
