This is a veritable laundry list of local events. Events are sorted by things like business related, kids, live music, and Halloween. If you don’t see your event, send it over and I’ll include it 🙂 I’ve made every effort to only include active events, but you will need to check the event page/site to get up to the minute updated info. This page will not be edited or updated after posting. Happy Eventing!

Pulse Check

Let’s be real. This isn’t everything that’s happening for the Fall. There are tons of events happening in the Butler area and in and around Pittsburgh.  Not to mention Erie, Kittanning, New Castle, and everywhere in between. Do your homework! Take the few minutes it takes to look up what’s happening in your area. The businesses hosting these local events will thank you. 😍 If you aren’t comfortable in large groups or need another option, reach out to someone in your bubble and see what they are doing. Stay safe out there!

This is an unofficial list of things happening in the Butler area this Fall. Please be sure you verify information for the events before heading over. I can’t guarantee this information is up to date etc etc. Now onto the fun stuff…
