Ultimate Play Day is a celebration of playfulness for people of all ages. Hosted by the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative, the event is an opportunity for people from throughout the Pittsburgh region to play together and raise awareness of the benefits of play for everyone—from birth to 199 years of age.

This year, the 5th Annual Ultimate Play Day will be held at Allegheny Commons East Park on Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 1-4 p.m. Member organizations of the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative and community partners will come together to provide a holistic model of innovative and creative play. Look for Carnegie Museum of Art for fun art activities in the park. Playful activities will spark conversations about topics including play and learning, risk in play, the benefits of play, and how we can incorporate play into our lives and the lives of our children every day. Featured activities are carefully selected as ones that can be replicated at home, in classrooms, and at neighborhood parks.

The event is free and open to the public, no registration is required.
