WYEP's 16th Annual Summer Music Festival will be held Friday, June 28th at Schenley Plaza. The festival is a free summer music concert, complete with kids activities and an indie craft marketplace.
This year's lineup includes:
This year's Kids and Crafters area expands beneath the trees across from the Plaza and in front of Carnegie Library, starting at 4pm. Local crafters from I Made It! Market (http://imadeitmarket.com/) set up shop for the crowds at the festival. Guests can shop for handmade crafts that support community and non-profit groups.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public, so participants are urged to grab a blanket, get comfortable and enjoy live music and activities on the lawn of Schenley Plaza.

Bike it, baby! This year our friends at Bike Pgh! will be on-site at all four events with bike valet services!
