Oakdale Market Stats

Welcome to Oakdale

Oakdale is a small, intimate community of residents who know the borough as "America's Hometown." And as you might expect, Oakdale certainly lives up to its nickname—every year, the town gets together for the Memorial Day parade, Independence Day celebration, Halloween Parade, and various other community events. But not only does Oakdale offer a tightly knit local atmosphere, but it's also conveniently located near major highways and 15 miles from Downtown Pittsburgh.

Spotlights of Oakdale

The Diner

Don't be fooled by its unassuming name—The Diner serves as a landmark for residents, who gather here to enjoy old-fashioned grub that's just as comforting as the company! Whether you're in the mood for a fresh omelette, a gooey calzone, or a hearty slice of cherry pie, you won't have any trouble curbing your cravings at this local staple. 

Kinsey Vintage Market

Located at a stunning historic event venue, the Kinsey Vintage Market features over 50 antique, artisan, and small business vendors. Shop all day long to discover everything from hand-poured candles to repurposed jewelry and even delectable chocolates! The market also features a winery, homemade mason jar lemonade, food trucks, and much more.

Helicon Brewing

Pull up a stool at Helicon Brewing's 48-seat taproom, located just outside of Downtown Oakdale. This small-batch 15-barrel brewery boasts some of the best drinks in town, all in an exciting setting with pinball machines and food trucks. Locals often recommend the German Brown Ale or American IPA, but the brewery also offers stouts and mild ales.

Oakdale might be America's Hometown, but it's only a hop, skip, and a jump away from some of Allegheny County's hottest attractions. Take a quick drive north on Noblestown Road to explore the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, or commute into the city for your next great career opportunity. Kennywood, the Andy Warhol Museum, and the Pittsburgh Zoo can also be found near the heart of Steel City. 

Top-notch schools

Children living in Oakdale attend the West Allegheny School District, which operates three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. A majority of students are proficient in reading and math, while the district as a whole has achieved a remarkable 94% graduation rate. On top of all these accolades, West Allegheny even earned a coveted "A" rating from Niche.

Hometown events

There's never a shortage of excitement in Oakdale. Here, you'll find neighbors decorating and gathering for just about every holiday under the sun, especially during the winter season. Join fellow neighbors for a haunted cabin during Halloween, gather at the local gazebo for a picnic, and join the fire department for a good cause during the summer Street Fair.
