Blue Dust’s Oysterfest Tradition Continues During PCBW 2017

If there’s one thing none of us can deny, it’s this: Blue Dust knows how to throw one helluva party.

Since 2014, this craft beer destination that rests by the train tracks that lead into The Waterfront has used the final Saturday of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week as a stage to throw the ultimate Spring kickoff party! Oysterfest has grown to become one of the most popular events of not just PCBW, but of the entire calendar year. Between this and October’s Pumpkinfest, there ain’t no party like a Blue Dust party under the bridge in Homestead.

Oysterfest 4 is set to raise the bar in 2017 with food trucks, live entertainment, beer, cocktails, and, of course, oysters. The event will unfold Saturday, April 29th from 1:00pm to 10:00pm underneath the Homestead Grays Bridge, just down the street from Blue Dust. No tickets are required for entry, but tickets must be purchased that can be redeemed for beer, cocktails, and oysters. Food truck tabs can be paid separately. CASH ONLY.
