Where you can find free concerts in Pittsburgh this summer
If you're going to be in Pittsburgh this summer, one of the most enjoyable cultural events in the city is the Summer Jam Free Concert Series held on Friday nights at Station Square, by the riverfront. These are popular community events that feature both local and nationally known acts performing hits from the 1970s through today. The summer jams at Station Square will be going on throughout the season, from June 26 through Aug. 28, and the music will begin at 8 p.m. Here is the schedule for this summer:
6/26: Brownie Mary + Buzz Poets
7/3: Nieds Hotel Band + Bridgewater Station
7/10: Livewire + Ratm2
7/24: The Edgar Winter Band + Silent Partner
7/31: Bruce in the USA + Time Tested
8/7: The Outlaws + Sicksense
8/14: Quinn Sullivan + Jill West and Blues Attack
8/21: Full Moon Fever + Traffic Jam
8/28: Gathering Field + Nameless in August
Station Square is one of Pittsburgh's most popular places to gather for eating, socializing and live entertainment. Aside from the music, you can enjoy the Fountain at Bessemer Court, which dazzles the eyes with its multicolored water jets. You can also find Segway tours and tour boats that operate out of Station Square.
If you're looking for a convenient and comfortable place to stay in downtown Pittsburgh, the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square will put you in the center of all the action. Our recently renovated waterfront hotel is right next to the free summer concerts at Station Square as well as other nearby attractions such as PNC Park, the Convention Center and Rivers Casino. Another benefit to reserving your room at the Sheraton is that you will be very close to many of the city's best restaurants and unique shops.
