Ultimate Play Day 2018

SUNDAY, MAY 20, 2018


1-4 PM

The Ultimate Play Day is a celebration of playfulness for people of all ages. Hosted by the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative, the event is an opportunity for people from throughout the Pittsburgh region to play together and raise awareness of the benefits of play for everyone- from birth to 199 yrs.

We're excited to be offering fun and playful raffle prizes throughout the event, so be sure to get your raffle tickets at the registration table upon your arrival! There will be so many fun activities happening, it's hard to list them all. But...we'll have bubbles, jump ropes, hula hoops, life-size games, art, make-your-own fashion, book giveaways, bicycle helmet fittings and giveaways, scavenger hunts and more! Join us for a day of play for all ages!

Allegheny Commons East in the NorthSide

1-4 pm  

This past year, the 5th Annual Ultimate Play Day was held at Allegheny Commons East Park on Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 1-4 PM.  Member organizations of the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative and community partners came together to provide a holistic model of innovative and creative play.  Playful activities sparked conversations about topics including play and learning, risk in play, the benefits of play, and how we can incorporate play into our lives and the lives of our children every day. Featured activities are carefully selected as ones that can be replicated at home, in classrooms, and at neighborhood parks.
