All Day:

  • Join us in the MAKESHOP as we explore a tiny Pittsburgh with map making and cartography. Use recycled materials to create different roads, rivers, parks, and buildings. Recreate the neighborhood where you live, or locate your school or community center. What will you find on your map?
  • Families come in all shapes and sizes! Come on down to the Studio and stage a scene for your family portrait, then draw it! A portrait is a painting or drawing of a person or people, usually just the face, and it often tells a story. What story will your family portrait tell?
  • Enjoy healthy food choices in the Big Red Room Cafe, part of the UPMC Health Plan Dining Smart Community
  • Stop by the UPMC for Kids booth for giveaways, games and information on CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program)
  • Ask a certified RN / UPMC for Kids Pediatric Health Coach your pediatric health-related questions
