Pittsburg has the amenities of a big city but in a small city environment with an active downtown, an unprecedented arts and culture scene, nationally-ranked Division II athletics, outdoor recreation and a vibrant business culture. Home to Pittsburg State University, the community unites to support and cheer for the Gorillas.

First and foremost, it’s the people that make Pittsburg great, lots of poets, artists, and musicians, young and old. And then, there’s lots of choices of Fried Chicken of course … so that’s another bonus.
