2021 Twilight Picnic

Twilight Picnic for the Parks: Back in the Swing

Twilight Picnic for the Parks: Back in the Swing brings a fresh spin to the region’s signature summer event! Toast the vital role the nine Allegheny County Parks play all year long, but particularly for the safe retreat they provide during uncertain times. Step inside the beauty of Hartwood Acres Park and join Allegheny County Parks Foundation supporters from the corporate and civic communities for a safe, joyous celebration. Raise a glass to toast our shared assets of the nine Allegheny County Parks and to their continued improvement, conservation and restoration.
