The Maple House Festival completed its inaugural presentation in a large retired livestock pasture on the verdant rolling hills of the Hartwood Acres Park in Pittsburgh PA. It was no coincidence that the festival was also a Parks Foundation benefit. The beautiful park area flanked by maple trees is, in other moments, a pleasant spot for a summer hike, picnic, or horse ride. It is also home to free summer concerts offered by the city, in a more casual setup.
