, Three Rivers Arts Festival
One of the highlights of the Thee Rivers Arts Festival will likely be a downtown outdoor Art Olympic Theaterand one of the last likely to be hosted by Tom Sarver himself. This one promises to unleash all the bitter neighborhood rivalry and pride into junk gang warfare as teams from around the city compete.
"My final ART OLYMPIC THEATRE main event is happening this Saturday, June 21st at Market Square in Downtown Pittsburgh. The event will begin at the Market Square stage with a concert by Opek. (Ben Opie and company) Thanks to a Seed Award from the Sprout Fund and a partnership with the Three Rivers Arts Festival, this event is FREE and open to the public. Team leaders for this event include Joshua Space, Elizabeth Keating and Scott Andrew.
