Known to locals as Jurassic Valley for its signature jungle-like vine canopy, the central valley of South Side Park in the City of Pittsburgh is the site of a multi-year ecological restoration effort spearheaded by the Friends of South Side Park with the support of countless generous donors and volunteer groups.

Thanks to a grant in 2017 from the Allegheny County Conservation district, the Friends of South Side Park were able to partner with Allegheny Goatscape to bring in a herd of goats (and their donkey friend, too) in order to assist with invasive vine removal, setting the stage for the first Goat Fest.

Now in its third year, Goat Fest is a crowd favorite, featuring food trucks, guided hikes along the wooded slopes of South Side Park, craft vendors, and of course, GOATS!
