become a host location

Interested in joining the Contest as a host location? Then you’ve come to the right place! In the course of just one afternoon, our hosts open their doors to 1,200 attendees! It’s a chance to introduce your business to residents and visitors who may not be familiar with what you have to offer. It’s the opportunity to showcase what you do best, while giving back to your South Side neighbors and supporting a great cause. By serving as a host location, you’ll be paired with one of our participating restaurants, and have the chance to compete for Best Host Location. It’s a great way to widen exposure to your business, meet and greet new customers, and encourage them to come back for more. We share tips and tools to help get you started. 

Note: Host locations must be located in Pittsburgh's South Side neighborhood!
