The Strip District is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is a one-half square mile area of land northeast of the central business district bordered to the north by the Allegheny River and to the south by portions of the Hill District.

The Strip District runs between 11th and 33rd Streets and includes three main thoroughfares—Smallman St., Penn Ave., and Liberty Ave.—as well as various side streets.

The area has developed into a historic market district with many ethnic food purveyers, some art studios, antique dealers, unique boutiques and other such businesses setting up shop where trains once delivered produce by the ton. The Strip District comes alive primarily on weekends during the summer months when street vendors are selling their wares, the open-air farmer's markets are in full swing, and party-goers sit outside and enjoy a drink. The Open Stage Theater located in the Strip, occupies a former liquor distributor's warehouse. It features comtemporary American drama and also hosts the Pittsburgh New Works Festival.
