Trust Culture, Trust Cool… This summer, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is coming in hot to remind us what it means to embrace the essence of Cool.

On Friday, July 8, PCT will once again bring forth a full night of music, art and dancing for their happening party in the Cultural District–Cosmopolitan Pittsburgh.

The 10th annual Cosmo Pittsburgh party celebrates “The Art of Cool” as this year’s theme, inviting guests to come forth and dress the part in calm, cool and collected couture.

Earlybirds can get the party started with VIP treatment at the “Trust Cool Social.” From 7-9PM, pre-party guests will get a chance to cool off with signature cocktails from the open bar, enjoy tastings from Wigle Whiskey, and plenty of samplings created by top chefs from around the Burgh.

Play it cool and indulge in your favorites from Plated Trade and 11209543_10153517859199917_8577738636767345734_nStation, or try something new from the soon-to-be-opened Union Standard. Smallman Galley, the Strip District’s latest chef incubator and restaurant space, will also be onsite featuring Carota Café, Josephine’s Toast and Provision PGH.

In addition to the private pregame and savory samples, VIP guests will also receive free parking perks during the event at Theater Square Garage.

From 9PM to midnight, the “Art of Cool Bash” and main event will feature endless live entertainment, provided by a few of the coolest musicians in the 412. Curated by the Burgh’s own art, music and tech collective, VIA, the music lineup includes West Philadelphia Orchestra, DJ SMI, Boulevards, slowdanger, and Chocolate Boombox DJ, Anthony Susan.


This year’s Cosmo Pittsburgh party goes down at the August Wilson Center. VIP tickets are $95 ($85 for Trust members), and general admission tickets are $30 ($25 for members.)

G.A. tickets will also include sweets, an espresso bar, two free drink tickets, $3 drinks all night, plus many more surprises…
