PittJohnstown LIVE

A Celebration of the Region's Artisans and Entrepreneurs

PittJohnstown LIVE, the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown's makers showcase event and PITTchFest competition, will take place June 3 and 4, 2016, at the campus Wellness Center. The event runs from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. both days.



Pitt-Johnstown LIVE is the informal extension of the Showcase for Commerce, the largest business-to-business and defense trade show in the Laurel Highlands. This event provides a visibility venue for independent, non-traditional businesses and makers to sell their goods, share their skills, and network with peers. Applications were accepted through May 20.


PittJohnstown LIVE’s competition was established to stimulate innovation and support student and community startups in launching and growing new business ventures in rural Pennsylvania. This two-day event enables networking with fellow entrepreneurs, advisors, investors, customers and collaborators while competing for more than $20,000 in cash and prizes. Applications were accepted through May 20. 

PittJohnstown LIVE is free and open to anyone interested in seeing what the best and brightest are bringing to the regional market and beyond.  From robotics to repurposed, from apps to accessories, from drum circles to drones and everything in between! Makers Premier will delight curious and discerning consumers with boutique shopping, home-grown music, locally crafted beer and wine, and fun-filled experimental learning activities for children.
