Event Description

Join the National Aviary for a vintage summer beach party at our 16th Annual Night in the Tropics! Indulge in the sights, sounds, and flavors of the tropics while enjoying a tropical escape right here in Pittsburgh.  

Don't miss any of the excitement at Pittsburgh's hottest summer party!

  • Indulge with beer, wine and specialty drinks, plus tasty bites from more than 30 of Pittsburgh's favorite restaurants and bakeries - all included with your ticket!

  • Hula dancers will transport guests to a distant paradise, and exotic fire performers keep things hot into the night, all compliments of Tuika's Polynesian Island Magic.  

  • Dance under the stars to sultry Latin beats with DJ Mike MC and enjoy live music by The Lava Game.  

  • Explore the National Aviary's lush habitats after dark, explore our newly renovated Tropical Rainforest, and get exclusive up-close interactions with beautiful birds.

All proceeds from Night in the Tropics support the National Aviary's education, avian medicine, and conservation programs both locally and internationally.
