With good food, good music and good friends – all for a great cause – nothing says “Summer in the ‘Burgh” quite like a weekend at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival.
This year’s festival, July 25-27, marks the 20th anniversary of Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank bringing the blues to our city. Over its two decades, Pittsburgh’s summer hallmark event has introduced 287 bands and raised over 10 million meals for children in need.
While fans come for the music, many stay for the delicious array of food trucks and drink tents, unique shop vendors and family fun at the KidZone. Have you ever wanted to take a hot air balloon ride? We invite you to gaze over the spectacular environment of Hartwood Acres and the Blues Festival crowd from Peoples Natural Gas’ tethered hot air balloon throughout the weekend.
We’re so excited to celebrate 20 years of the Pittsburgh Blues Festival with you and your family! Friday is free when you bring a bag of nonperishable groceries or donate online. Check out the full lineup and buy your tickets online at pghblues.com. See you at Hartwood!
