Pittsburgh's Historic Chinatown public celebration, April 16.


OCA Pittsburgh will host its public celebration of Pittsburgh's Historic Chinatown on April 16.
For mroe than 120 years the Chinese have called Pittsburgh ome. Come and help us celebrate the official Pennsylvania landmark designation of Pittsburgh Chinatown!
Attractions will include food, performances, music, and Chinese-American rapper Jason Chu. For more information about Pittsburgh's Chinatown, which was largely displaced by the construction of the Boulevard of the Allies, please see this 2019 Next Pittsburgh profile or this 1959 article on the "end of the road for Chinatown."

The city's Chinatown was granted a state historical marker in March 2021, with a dedication ceremony scheduled for (and cancelled) last September.
