LODGING, Parking, and more

Because April 27th -30th is a busy graduation time in Pittsburgh, hotels can fill up quickly. We recommend you book as soon as possible.

Ace Hotel is partnered with PPF and offers a discounted rate for exhibitors. Please book through their website using the code “NOSLEEP” for a discount.

Other nearby hotels include The Residence Inn and Wyndham University Center.

Parking in the museum’s lot is the easiest option, during the weekend it costs $7/day but during the week, the rates are higher. Street parking is free on Sundays, but can be difficult to find in the area.

The museum has a cafe inside with food and drinks available during the fair. There are a number of food options on Craig St, close to the museum. We encourage you to bring food with you or an assistant to help you take a break. Our volunteers can watch a booth for a short period of time. Please be discreet with eating and drinking inside the fair, as the museum security can be very strict.
