Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. (DPI) will host Downtown Pittsfield Restaurant Week during and in conjunction with the City of Pittsfield’s 12th Annual 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival from February 16-26, 2023.
Downtown Pittsfield Restaurant Week is sponsored by Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. and the Mill Town Foundation.
Downtown Pittsfield Restaurant Week will feature a passport to encourage people to dine in as many restaurants as possible over the 10 days. Patrons will receive a stamp on their passport for each unique place they dine, with each stamp being an entry into a prize package drawing for restaurant gift cards. If a person visits 10 different places in the 10 days, they will get 10 bonus entries, and if they donate a non-perishable food item to benefit the South Community Food Pantry at South Congregational Church, they will also receive a bonus stamp. Donations may be dropped off at Downtown Pittsfield, Inc., 33 Dunham Mall, from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday.
The passport will be available at participating locations the week of February 16.
