Billboards have gone up recently for the first annual Pittsburgh Chinese Cultural Festival, to be held in Oakland on September 19. A June letter from Dequan Jiao soliciting donors and participants provides a brief overview:
It is my great pleasure to share some important information about our first ever Pittsburgh Chinese Cultural Festival. The inaugural 2015 Pittsburgh Chinese Cultural Festival will be held on September 19th, in the heart of Oakland on Bigelow Blvd between Forbes Ave and Fifth Ave. This festival provides a chance for the Chinese community to showcase themselves, network and build new connections, positively present Chinese culture, and allow the Chinese community to make an affirmative contribution to the richness of Pittsburgh and the United States as a whole. Delicious Chinese and Asian foods, fantastic stage performance, all kinds of Chinese culture exhibitions, and fun kids zone, All in one day (09/19 Sat.) and one place (Bigelow Blvd between Forbes Ave and Fifth Ave) for you and your family!
