East Liberty

Proud Hood is a celebration of East Liberty's Arts & Culture, diversity, history, and community connections. History shows us this is a community of strong character, resilience and soul.
After the hardships that East Liberty has gone through, we have reason to be proud that we can come together as a community and share our vibrant, unique cultures. Join residents and patrons for the festivities Saturday, June 7 from noon to four in East Liberty's Town Square, surrounding East Liberty Presbyterian Church (ELPC) on Whitfield St, between Penn Ave and Baum Blvd.


Learn why Lawrenceville's slogan is "History in the Remaking." On Saturday, June 7, businesses will open their doors for an all-day Sidewalk Sale to celebrate our neighborhood.
Explore unique shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, music venues, a theatre, library, bowling alley, tea room, and more. Nearly all of our spots are locally owned, and many feature products handcrafted by local artists and the proprietors themselves. Thanks to our friendly community feel, creative vibe, and authentic character, once you' ve been here, you' ll want to come back! Learn more at

Join in! Volunteers are needed to help distribute fliers, maps, and decorate the trolleys that will be circulating throughout the three neighborhoods.
