Pittsburgh celebrates the 412 on 4/12
This trio of digits is no longer just a telephone area code. It’s an identity.
The 412 is a catchy moniker for all things Pittsburgh and April 12 is the natural day to celebrate it. Nothing seems to legitimize a trend more than a social media hashtag so #412Day was born.
Our sports teams are on board.
No better city in the world.

We love our city.

The 412 area code was first born in 1947 but the current 412 footprint was established in 1998. It includes Pittsburgh in its entirety and other surrounding communities in Allegheny County.
Now it’s an official thing:

What better place in #Pittsburgh to watch the sunrise on #412Day than the Duquesne Incline? The city looked incredible this morning, glowing under some dramatic clouds as the first glow of sunrise appeared on the horizon. Hope yinz are extra yinzer today n'at. pic.twitter.com/8sxEZS1PDW
