discovermanchesterTreading Art has been putting together an amazing list of weekend events around Pittsburgh. Each week we will highlight one of those events here on IheartPGH and link you back over to Treading Art’s weekly events post.

This weeks Treader’s Choice event:

Manchester House + Garden Tour

Sunday, August 4th

11am-5pm // $15

According to the Manchester Historical Society:

After a year’s absence from the home tour scene, Manchester is back with a home and garden tour de force.  We invite you to Discover Manchester as we transform the traditional home tour experience into a fun and funky afternoon of exploration and surprises.

Instead of the usual booklet, tour-goers will be handed a treasure map to guide them along the tour.  The route will take visitors through a number of beautifully rehabbed homes including the Sipes Mansion, on tour for the first time since 2006.  There’s a refreshing sorbet garden tasting courtesy of Ann Gilligan Sorbet, as well as a stop at the new La Prima Roasting facility on Chateau.

The tour starts at the 1300 block of Page St – Manchester

Make sure you check out the rest of the Weekend Threadings!


Treading Art

From artist studio tours to in-depth interviews, offers a wide range of Pittsburgh-centric content focused on the arts and culture. The website is a resource for Western PA residents to learn about and engage with their creative communities. This includes everything from music, food and brews to visual art and literature. Features such as photography posts, local guides or exhibition reviews invite residents to participate in the redevelopment of their city or stay informed of the excitement directly from the website. The Weekend Treadings is another unique feature to Treading Art. Every week we produce a curated list of events that highlights distinct experiences happening around town from Thursday through Sunday. This is available every Thursday and can be viewed on the website or delivered to your inbox. The Weekend Treadings newsletter also gives readers an opportunity to receive exclusive invitations to Treading Art produced events. Treading Art is run by Christine Smith and Melissa LuVisi, both of whom are transplants from Northern California. We were drawn to Pittsburgh by its thriving arts community, large number of working artists and the welcoming environment for entrepreneurs. Immediately upon moving here we felt a connection with the city’s sense of pride and collaborative nature.
