Destination Downtown Christmas!


Last year the Christmas season was brought to life by downtown Pittsburg merchants, civic groups and the city participating in putting out beautiful holiday decorations and lights.  The Santa Sleigh, Santa Mailbox and big Christmas packages were all supported by a fundraiser called Hee Haw a few years back.  Pittsburg Main Street would like to continue the tradition and add to the holiday joy by hosting a Destination Downtown Dinner fund raiser.  The funds raised form the dinner will purchase lights as a donation to the County for the County Court House trees and lawn. The area is easily seen from the Main Street area. It will add to the goal of making Pittsburg a Christmas destination!


The dinner event is October 19, 2019 at the fantastic NTCC Culinary Art Building at 114 Jefferson St. Dinner and Silent Auction will be from 6 P. M. - 8 P.M.

The dinner is by Dallas Chef Bill Bush. Menu is: Hand carved pecan smoked prime rib, Lemon chicken, Roasted garlic mashed potatoes, Vegetable medley, Mixed field greens/orange vinaigrette, French bread, Dessert, 2 glasses of wine from Loa Pinos, tea and coffee from US Roast.


Tickets are available until sold out for $62.50 each at City Hall or on the City Web site under Community / Events /Destination Downtown Dinner

You can also submit a donation at both locations or at the event.
