2024 Pittsburgh Recovery Walk

September 7 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk is an annual event celebrating the many roads to recovery from addiction and all those who travel them.

What? The 9th annual Pittsburgh Recovery Walk will include speakers, a giant Resource Fair, the Pittsburgh Recovery Awards, kids’ activities, food trucks, music, and a parade through Downtown Pittsburgh.

When? The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk will take place on Saturday, September 7, 2024 from 9:00 am–1:00 pm. Streets will close at 11:00 am and the walk will begin at 11:30 am.

Who? The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk is free and open to the public. Everyone whose life has been touched by addiction or recovery is invited to join our celebration.

Where? The Pittsburgh Recovery Walk will be held outside at 1201 Waterfront Place (just north of Smallman Street in the Strip District). The walk will proceed down Penn Avenue to 7th Street, right on Fort Duquesne Blvd. to 9th Street, and back on Penn Avenue to 11th and Waterfront.

Why? The purpose of the Pittsburgh Recovery Walk is to celebrate the many roads to recovery from addiction and all those who travel them. Specifically, the walk aims to 1) celebrate recovery and recovery supports, 2) eliminate stigma, and 3) showcase resources for recovery support, health, and harm reduction in our region.

We’re getting the fun ready for you!

Eagleburger Band — longtime Pittsburgh Recovery Walk favorites — will be back this year after a hiatus. Their zany, energetic musicianship is absolutely infectious.

Munhall Community Band will be leading the walk again this year with their incredible auxiliary marching band.
