Join us for the Fall Edition of the California Markets at Oktoberfest!  Saturday, October 12th from 2pm – 7pm

We’ll have locally made beer from Rivertowne Brewery and Home Brewers from the neighborhood to enjoy!  $5 for a bottomless cup to enjoy a variety of tastes.

In addition, you’re invited to bring your favorite pumpkin recipe to enter our Pumpkin Baking Contest!  We’ll have categories for prizes and judges will announce the winners later in the evening.

Kids are welcome to enter Popular Pittsburgh’s Pumpkin Decorating Contest with a painted pumpkin.  More details about the contest at popularpittsburgh.com/

Enjoy some holiday shopping with local vendors, good food and drinks, and games!


If you’re a Brighton Heights resident, or like gardening, come earlier in the day from 9am – 12pm to help the Brighton Heights Citizens Federation do their annual fall garden clean-up and receive a comp ticket for a bottomless cup. See the office for details about receiving your ticket.


Timeless Beauty Fashion Show & Chubby’s Family Pageant

We had a blast at our last summer California Market with local businesses claiming the runway and photo ops in front of Chubby’s for a family pageant.  Check out some great moments during the day.

If you have any additional photographs or videos from that day, email pghretail [@] gmail.com or post them to Facebook! Thanks!

California Markets on California Ave!

March was quite a lion with many deadlines, meetings, and conversations to get PGHretail’s first series of events in gear.  Now that things are moving along and we’re past the initial goal posts, here’s more about what’s going on.
The California Ave. business corridor of Brighton Heights will be holding monthly events called The California Markets in Summer 2013!  We’re so excited to showcase all the really amazing activity the Brighton Heights Citizen Federation has been doing behind the scenes, as well as, inviting local farmers, vendors, and businesses to share in a day of fun, contests, and being our neighbor! You will be able to find more event details, applications, and contact info under the California Markets page on the left.  Also, follow PGHretail on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date!
