Social Events at DrupalCon Pittsburgh 2023

Social events, where our community gets to come together and connect casually, are as important as the breakout sessions at DrupalCon! Submit your social event to us via the link below, and we'll add it to this page. Please ensure that your social event is in line with the Drupal Code of Conduct.

Disclaimer: The Drupal Association is not the organizer for off-site social events or community meet-ups during the week of DrupalCon with the exception of Trivia Night. We are not able to enforce our COVID-19 safety policies at social events which we do not organize, so please use your best judgment when attending. We highly encourage you to mitigate the risk of infection at social events by masking at indoor social events, socially distancing when unmasked, and testing frequently.

Red Baraat at the Three Rivers Arts Festival!

Date: 7 June, Wednesday 

Time: 6:00pm EST

Location: Starting at The Backyard, 8th & Penn

Price: Free!

Covid Policy: The event is completely outdoors. Attendees will have the option of being closer to the stage in a crowd but otherwise social distancing should be possible at all times.

We’ll start at the backyard at 6pm for food and drinks, then make our way down to the main stage around 7pm!

The Three Rivers Arts Festival is a free Arts & Music festival in downtown Pittsburgh, literally blocks away from the convention center! Their headliner on Wednesday is Red Baraat - a "merging of hard driving North Indian bhangra with elements of hip-hop, jazz and raw punk energy, created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people."

This is an outdoor, public festival, so it might be busy. We'll plan to show up around 6PM to get food and drinks at the central food court area, then meander through the artists tents toward the main stage. We will find an area for DrupalCon folks to gather and post our location in #drupalcon in Drupal Slack.

Join us for scenic views, great music, and a chill evening out on the town. Reach out to @froboy in Drupal Slack, preferrably in the #drupalcon channel for questions!
