Thank you so much for everything that you and the entire Windswept staff did for our company picnic. It was a great success. I have heard from numerous employees about how much of a wonderful time they had. You guys amaze me with how you pull everything together and make it seem so easy. I know it’s not!
On a personal note, I can’t thank you enough for fixing my mistake with the starting time of the picnic. I truly appreciate you taking care of that problem like it wasn’t a big deal. I know it was. You really came through for me and I won’t forget it. Thank you so much.
"I highly recommend Windswept for all your party rental needs! Marty and Mary Linn were such a pleasure to work with. They came through for us when no one else would during these challenging times. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful, and it was all thanks to them. Do yourself a favor and use Windswept for your next event."

"Where do we even begin??!! Perhaps a little background first. We had a wedding completely planned for our son and his fiancé, in Pittsburgh, on June 20, 2020. By May 1st we knew our 300 guest wedding needed to be cancelled. Patrick and Moriah were adamant about getting married on June 20, a date that meant a lot to them. Honestly I didn’t think we could pull anything substantial off. But they were willing to make sacrifices and so we started to plan. You were recommended to us and WOW!!!! We were so blessed. Not only did you help us plan and execute the most intimate, beautiful, special wedding, but you gave us so many other suggestions and ideas. I can not even begin to thank you for all of your hard work. You rented us more than I thought possible. Everything was in immaculate shape. We rented two tents from you and each was perfect and unique for the ceremony and reception. Your staff was more than professional, prompt and hard working. Our 90 guests continue to say they can not even believe this was our plan B!! From the bottom of our hearts we thank thank thank you. We could never have had the wedding that Patrick and Moriah dreamed of without you and your wonderful staff and rentals."

Windswept Entertainment and Events was established in 1991 under the name Windswept Adventures. Windswept Adventures began as a hot air balloon ride company flying passengers through the Laurel Highlands region allowing them to enjoy the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains.
Windswept was honored to have one of the largest Balloon Fleets east of the Mississippi. All flights came complete with valet service, continental breakfast with champagne toast upon landing. Birthdays, unique engagements, anniversaries and weddings were commonly celebrated high over rural Western Pennsylvania. Windswept Adventures was dedicated to giving all of its passengers a first class experience.
In 1992 Windswept was approached by Giant Eagle Corporation to help design and create a Giant Eagle Hot Air Balloon to use over certain venues and grand openings. The Giant Eagle Balloon was seen flying over and around much of Western Pennsylvania and made several appearances over the Three Rivers Stadium during sporting events.
Windswept was also privileged to fly for several other local and national companies competing and placing in many balloon rallies including the Three Rivers Regatta, Canton Hall of Fame rally and many others from 1992 to 2000.
In response to our customers' advertising needs, in 1993 Windswept Adventures began a massive evolution by adding further promotional items to our inventory and eventually changing the company's name to Windswept Promotions. Before long Windswept Promotions was helping its clients to draw crowds into retail locations and major events with promotional items such as cold air advertising balloons for roofs, searchlights, and air puppets. Soon after Banner machines were added to print custom banners and signage for events.
By 1994 Windswept began to see a new wave of entertainment in the inflatable industry and was eager to incorporate inflatables to help entertain its customers. Working closely with our existing advertising balloon manufacturer Windswept was able to introduce these new phenomena to company picnics, school fun days, sporting venues, community days and birthday celebrations.
Over the next couple of years Windswept Promotions stopped flying hot air balloons and dedicated itself to becoming the one company in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas where corporate and private customers alike could hire Windswept to create their entire event.
In order to accomplish this Windswept had to again expand its product line by adding a party rental division that carried:
In October of 2005 Windswept acquired a local entertainment booking agency and Windswept Promotions became Windswept Entertainment and Events.
With over 300 entertainers on our roster of Musician, Magicians, Clowns, Jugglers, Singers, Characters, Stiltwakers, Princess Characters, Temporary Airbrush Tattoo Artists, Face Painters, Balloon Artists and many more Windswept was truly able to handle all facets of any event in the Pittsburgh region.
Even though Windswept has gone through many changes over the years our business philosophy has remained the same, we strive to ensure our customers a first class event by providing them with well maintained equipment and unmatched service.
By working with Windswept Entertainment and Events you will benefit from our years of event planning experience, giving you the event of your dreams, stress free.
