Link on Penn is a project of PopUp! Pittsburgh, presented by Huntington Bank and powered by Leadership Development Initiative XXIII, a program of Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. The event takes place Saturday, May 21st. You’ll find the best that Wilkinsburg has to offer in this free and open to the public, family friendly event.


Link on Penn will feature live performances by Westinghouse Band INK and Grace Band, balloon animals, face painting, police and fire trucks, 3 on 3 basketball, make & take arts and crafts, Saturday Light Brigade radio, stories about Wilkinsburg (#wilkinsburgstories), and more. This showcase of Wilkinsburg will have a “street-fair” vibe and plenty of local flavor.

In addition to highlighting Wilkinsburg’s strengths, Link on Penn has been designed to:

  • Link youth with each other and their communities,
  • Link storytellers with an audience, and
  • Link businesses with customers, new and old.
