Full Bloom is KST’s annual benefit bash and celebration of summer in the city! Every June, East Liberty heats up as crowds from all corners of the city converge at Full Bloom for live performances, food and drinks from the East End’s best bars and restaurants, and a dance floor that’s home to the best movers and shakers in the city.

Best of all, your contribution to Full Bloom supports KST’s summer programming series East Liberty LIVE! (ELL). ELL provides positive creative activities and innovative arts experiences for those who work, play, and live in the East End. Throughout the summer months, KST activates our neighborhood with family friendly classes, mentorship programs, participatory dance activities, performances and screenings. Attendees name their own price for all KST Presents events through Pay What Makes You Happy admission.

Join Pittsburgh’s doers, makers, movers and shakers for a dance-fueled night of celebration that will make an exciting summer BLOOM!
