The festival includes a 30-minute lunch break each day of the festival. Lunch is an optional add-on with your pass and costs $12 for both days. You will be given a lunch ticket for each day at registration, which you can use to get your lunch.
Food options will include turkey & cheese or ham & cheese croissant sandwiches, fruit & nut bars, carrots & hummus, veggies, fruits, and other snacks. 
Feel free to bring your own lunch instead! There is no obligation to participate. This is just a convenience to make your weekend run a little smoother.  
Lunch can also be ordered from E-Town Bar & Grill, just 1/2 a block from the studio. You should call in your order ahead of time so it can be ready for you at the start of lunch. Call: (412) 784-1720


A good quality hotel is the Comfort Inn on Gamma Drive. It is close, while still avoiding potential city traffic. The price is always reasonable and the rooms are clean. –>
