It’s hard to believe the 60th anniversary of the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival is already behind us. We had the good fortune of an amazing ten days this year, but don’t just take it from us. No time of the year generates more buzz Downtown than TRAF. Artists, performers and visitors all contributed to a veritable tsunami of wonderful captured moments.

We’ve collected a few of our favorites here (make sure to click through for full captions and comments), but there are so many more we’d love to include. To get your festival fill, make sure to browse the #TRAF19 tag on Instagram and Twitter.


We owe so much to the artists that showcase their talents at the festival — be that in a booth, as public art or even on faces!

Performers are the life that keeps the festival grooving throughout the week. Our toes are still tapping from this year’s jam-packed lineup.

Most important of all are the hundreds of thousands of visitors that fill the festival grounds with their energy and enthusiasm.

And with that we close the books on six decades of the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival. We can’t wait to bring 60 more to Pittsburgh — starting with next year’s 2020 festival! We’ll see you then.
