Welcome to Doo Dah Nights

For the eleventh annual Doo Dah Days: The Stephen C. Foster Music and Heritage Festival the Lawrenceville Historical Society is joining in with the City of Pittsburgh’s 200th anniversary celebration and instead of our usual outdoor festival, our Stephen Foster tribute is going indoors in the evening at the Spirit Hall and Lodge, 242 51st Street in Lawrenceville (the former 581 Moose Lodge). This year, we’re calling the occasion Doo Dah Nights and we’ll be featuring three bands and square dancing.

On Saturday, July 9, 2016 we start at 7:30 pm and go until 11:00 pm. So, if you went down to the point to watch Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial parade at 11 a.m., you’ll have plenty of time to get back to Lawrenceville to dance up a storm. (Or just have fun listening.)

Spirit has food and drinks available at their Slice Island eatery and adult beverages are also available. This means that this is an over 21 event with a $10 cover charge. We hope you’ll enjoy this change-of-pace celebration as next year we’ll be taking our festival back outdoors.

Spirit is located near Allegheny Cemetery at 51st and Butler Streets. Refer to the map on our “Directions” page.
