History never goes out of style at the Senator John Heinz History Center’s sixth annual Vintage Pittsburgh retro fair, presented in partnership with The Neighborhood Flea, on Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event will feature dozens of local vendors selling genuine vintage clothing, accessories, home décor, vinyl records, and more.
In addition to shopping, visitors to Vintage Pittsburgh can enjoy delicious food and drinks from some of Pittsburgh’s local hot spots, including:
- Food truck favorites Bulldawgs and Randita’s;
- Tasty pastries from piebird;
- Caffeination from Zeke’s Coffee Pittsburgh;

Visitors can also explore 1920s fashion and more in the new American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition exhibition, which showcases vintage clothing, shoes, and accessories straight from the Roaring ‘20s. The traveling exhibit, created by the National Constitution Center, brings the story of Prohibition vividly to life. Visitors can learn to dance the Charleston in a recreated speakeasy, track down rumrunners in a custom-built video game, and pose for a mugshot in a lineup of some of the era’s most notorious gangsters.
