ONE WEEK AWAY!

The 3rd Annual ETNA ART TOUR

ONE WEEK AWAY!

Join the Etna Economic Development Corporation for its 3rd annual Etna Art Tour—a celebration of art and artists of Etna!

Visit artists’ studios, galleries and shops. Enjoy community art activities and performances. Outdoor concert on Butler Street by André Costello and the Cool Minors with Essential Machine and the Mondaze. Studio tours featuring 448 Studios, Reneski Replications, .5 Gallery, Blue Hazel Studio, and more! Food Trucks + Local Eateries! FREE ADMISSION! OPEN TO EVERYONE! Free parking on-street or at Crescent Street Ball Field.

This year, the event will be expanded, and Butler Street between Freeport and Bridge Streets will be closed for a free outdoor main-stage concert featuring local standouts, Andre Costello and the Cool Minors, along with Essential Machine, and Etna’s very own The Mondaze.  The EEDC is grateful for the support of HEAR CORP who is providing the sound production for the event.

Artists at 448 Studios, Reneski Replications, Blue Hazel Studio, and .5 Gallery will open their doors for this walk-about tour of artwork created in Etna.  This is an opportunity for the public to meet and see how and where artists work, and talk with them about their creative process and inspiration.

In addition to studio tours and the main stage musical entertainment, the evening includes art demonstrations, performances, a children’s art table, and an interactive “paint-our-canvas” community activity. The PGH Taco Truck will be on-site, and local restaurants will be open and serving delicious fare. 

Local businesses, including Jester’s Court, N.C. Hair Studio, Etna Print Circus, Quickhatch Coffee+Food and Cop-Out Pierogies will also be participating and highlighting the unique artistic aspects of their professions.

About the Etna Economic Development Corporation
As an all-volunteer organization, structured on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street model,the Etna Economic Development Corporation identifies, organizes and implements projects of civic, community and commercial importance in Etna. It is led by a Board of Directors, business owners, elected officials, and residents of the community, all dedicated to economic development and revitalization of Etna’s business district.

About Etna, Pennsylvania

Etna is a small bustling community covering one square mile along the banks of the Allegheny River, and is bordered on three sides by Millvale, Shaler Township, and Sharpsburg. Centrally located, Etna is just 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh and close enough for easy access to the shopping centers in North Hills, Fox Chapel, and Monroeville, the cultural opportunities in Oakland and North Side, and nine local colleges and universities.

Once a mill town, over the past twenty years, Etna has re-emerged as a residential community with a highly diversified business base. Within its borders are over 160 businesses ranging from good-sized industrial firms to smaller, family-owned retail and consumer outlets. Etna has an approximate population of 3925 and is growing younger each year as more families with small children move into the community. These young families have a refreshing vitality and a dedication to get involved and work to make Etna a great place to raise children. Their efforts have been fruitful, as evidenced by the many youth-oriented activities that abound throughout the year. There's baseball, softball, and deck hockey leagues open to both girls and boys and active scouting troops from Cubs and Brownies to Seniors and Explorers. These activities, coupled with Etna's pool, playground, and sporting complex on Pine Street afford positive, close-to-home leisure time fun, not just for children, but for the whole family.

Etna Riverfront Park

Etna Riverfront Park

The Borough continues to work on the development of their Riverfront Park and Trail along the Allegheny River below the 62nd Street Bridge.  They are currently developing plans for connections into the community and to Shaler Township so that they, too, can directly access the trail along the river in Etna and for parking areas near the trail head.  They acquired the remaining parcels located in Etna along the riverfront through a donation by Friends of the Riverfront in 2014 and have diligently been fund raising to make this Park and Trail connection a reality.  In 2016, the Borough adopted their Park and Trail Master Plan.  Several public meetings were held for input into the design of the Park.  Work for riverfront trail development both north and south of Etna is ongoing, making the possibilities for connections exciting!  The Etna portion will begin at the Shaler Township boundary line and continue to the boundary with our neighbor, Sharpsburg Borough.  Etna is working closely with the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Allegheny County, Friends of the Riverfront, State Senator Randy Vulakovich and State Representative Dom Costa to make the river trail connections up the Allegheny Valley a reality.
