6 Events in Pittsburgh You Should Attend This June

With summer around the corner, it’s high time we figured out how we’re going to spend the season. Our Pittsburgh limo service specialists have compiled a comprehensive list of some of the best events and activities you can enjoy in June to kick off your summer the right way.

Now, without further ado, let us have a look at some of the most exciting events scheduled for June in the Steel City. Have an amazing season.

Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival

The jazz fan base isn’t the biggest and, statistically speaking, you are probably not a jazz fan yourself. Nonetheless, you don’t have to be a jazz fan to enjoy the coolest and funkiest festival of the summer; the International Jazz Festival. This year’s jazz festival will be hosted by Citizen’s Bank and is set to go down from the 15th to the 17th of June in Downtown Pittsburgh. During this period, downtown will be transformed into a jazz club for three days, complete with beer gardens, jam sessions, and concerts that will keep you occupied all weekend long.

Note, there will be both free and ticketed events at the Wilson Center, which will feature artist talks, master classes, and musical performances from more than 100 local and international jazz artists including Shemekia Copeland, Marcus Miller, Terri Lyne Carrington, Kenny Garrett, Noel Quintana, Polly Gibbons, DJ Selecta, Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles, DJ Selecta, and many more. With a chilled out and intimate setting, this is one event that you don’t want to miss out on this month.

Vintage Grand Prix

The Vintage Grand Prix is scheduled to go down between the 7th and 21st of June; this is the United States’ largest street race, featuring 10 days of racing, parties, car shows, motor sports events, and parades. The purpose of this event is to put together the most comprehensive vintage automotive show and, in the process, raise funds for the autistic and developmentally disabled people of the Steel City. This event has raised over $5million since 1983, so you will not only be enjoying the show but taking part in a worthy cause. Head on down to Schenley Park and enjoy the 37th annual Grand Prix this June. 

Snowball Day

Make your way to the Carnegie Science Center along Allegheny Avenue on the 21st of June. Surprisingly, at this event you get to pay whatever you are willing to pay for general admission and if you bring your own snowball you will be able to launch it into the Ohio River so long as the weather permits. Note, the launching site will only be open between 10 am and 3 pm, so you may want to get there early.

Anthrocon

Anthrocon is an event specifically tailored for people who are fascinated with anthropomorphic. This will be the 20th annual event of its kind and it will go down from the 30th of June through to the 3rd of July at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. This is also the 11th year in a row that the event has found its way to Pittsburgh. In celebration of the 20th Anthrocon Anniversary, the theme to this year’s event is ‘the Rolling Twenties’. One of the main highlights of the event will be the Fursuit Parade which is scheduled for the 2nd of July at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from 2 pm.

Over the years Anthrocon events have raised more than $200,000 for animal-friendly organizations in Pennsylvania and this year the lucky beneficiary is the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. The event brings together enthusiasts, artists, animators, puppeteers, and costumers who get to engage in seminars, workshops, costume-building, and animation in a welcoming setting.

Kaiju Big Battel

Head over to the Byham Theater on the 29th of June between 8 am and 10 pm for the Kaiju Big Battel. This is one event you will have to see for yourself to believe. The planet is under threat when large monsters clash and fight in spectacular battles. Kaijus (Monsters) you can expect to see at the event include Sky Denver, a blue alien that devours everything in its path, a hare-sage named Dusto Bunny, a space bug known as Uchu Chu, and a rouge scientist who goes by Dr. Cube. Fire up your imagination and dive into this world of fantasy this June.

Muddy Princess

The Muddy Princess Corporation has organized a 5 km obstacle course specifically meant for women. Women of all backgrounds and fitness levels are free to participate in this event for anywhere between $40 and $100. Don’t feel intimidated if you don’t feel fit enough to take part in this competition, the main purpose is not to see who will complete the course first but rather to have fun challenging oneself; running, climbing, crawling, sliding, balancing and, most importantly, laughing. 

The best thing about this event is that there is no limit to the number of individuals who can participate, so you are free to invite as many of your girlfriends as you can gather, the more the merrier. However, if you are entering as an individual, there is no need to feel left out; once you are there, all princesses are part of the same, big family. As an added incentive, there will be staff assistance whenever an obstacle proves to be difficult for you, ensuring that everyone makes it through to the end after all is said and done. This event will kick off at 7 am at the SwitchbackMX, along William Flynn Highway, so don’t be late.

From our clients:

Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
