Larimer is a Pittsburgh neighborhood that is bordered by East Liberty, Highland Park, Lincoln-Lemington, Homewood, Point Breeze, and Shadyside. The Larimer Consensus Group (LCG) is comprised of residents and stakeholders whose mission is “to empower the Larimer neighborhood to move into sustainable community and economic development via strong communication networks, partnerships, and an open participatory process.” On Friday, August 19th, the Larimer Consensus Group and Neighborhood Allies will hold a celebration of LCG’s new home at the Environment and Energy Community Outreach (EECO) Center. There will be a brief agenda to showcase the community, and drinks and appetizers will be served. To attend, please RSVP by Monday, August 15th here.

You’ll want to come back to Larimer the next day on Saturday, August 20th for the Larimer Alive Community Festival! The festival will take place from noon to 6:00 p.m. on Larimer Avenue between Meadow and East Liberty Blvd. The event will celebrate the heritage of the people who live in this emergent community, including African American, German, and Italian. Festivities will include a rock climbing wall, musical performances, pony rides, car show, face painting, dunk tank, bouncy houses, line dancing, and much more!
