Not only is the Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival coming back after a one-year break, it’s new location is purely Pittsburgh.
As first reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gretchen McKay, the festival will take place on Sunday, September 24 at Kennywood Park.
Tickets are expected to go on sale in February, and the festival will feature at least 20 vendors. From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Attendees can expect to sample tried-and-true potato-and-cheese varieties along with more novel creations, such as Pittsburgh Taco Truck’s Pierogi Taco, Cop Out Pierogies’ Buffalo Chicken and Thanksgiving Dinner pierogies, and South Side BBQ’s “Almost Famous ‘Rogicone’,” which was a waffle cone filled with pepper jack mac ‘n cheese and North Carolina coleslaw topped with a pair of succulent pierogies.

My Grandma made the best pierogis. she moved to Lawrenceville from Poland. She has passed and I moved to Kansas. Is there any way to get some of those pierogis shipped here?

Perogies Plus in McKees Rocks. They shipped to me in NC & I’m sure they’ll ship to you!! Enjoy!
My Mom’s family was also Polish and lived in Lawrenceville… My Grandmas sisters used to make perogies at Holy Family ?. I will find some church perogies and let you know.

Hoping a 5k will be a part of it! I’d hate to go to Cleveland for a pierogi race.
You can go to PNC park during any of the Pirates home games for a pierogi race. Skip Cleveland.
What’s a pierogi race? My mother was a Polish but Dad was Italian. I got the best of both worlds!

I will have my pierogi truck there, Grandma Cyl’s Homemade Pierogi! Come and see me.
You need to bring that Pierogi truck to Johnstown PA.
