Music, food will fill Broad Street for Sewickley Art & Music Festival

The Sewickley Art & Music Festival on Sept. 28 and 29 is expected to draw hundreds of visitors for food, craft beer, live music and art programs.

A stroll through Sewickley’s unparalleled business district Sept. 28-29 will find the best the village has to offer in art, music and food.

The Sewickley Art & Music Festival highlights the charm and flair of Broad Street where hundreds of visitors can catch a glimpse of art, snack on hand-held food and drink from a variety of craft brews (for those 21 and older.)

An eclectic mix of music will waft through the business corridor, highlighted by well-known rockers like Joe Grushecky, Jim Krenn and the Granati Brothers.

Hosted by Explore Sewickley, the two-day affair runs from 5 to 10 p.m. Sept. 28 and noon to 10 p.m. Sept. 29.

The event is free and will go on regardless of the weather. A $2 wristband is required to purchase beer.

The picturesque streets will come alive with programs designed to encourage visitors to explore the galleries, eateries and open-late shops.

Home to some of the best fare in the Pittsburgh region, visitors can grab a bite at one of the downtown restaurants or stop at the many food trucks that will include Cousins Maine Lobster, The Coop Chicken and Waffles and Parrot Bay Cafe.

Pittsburgh music promoter Rich Engler has arranged a can’t-miss line-up of music, starting Sept. 28 with Ryan Fennell, Sierra Sellers & Alex Jeffe

Blue Shift, The Granati Brothers and Bowie Live, a David Bowie tribute band.

The Sept. 29 line-up follows with Pre-Teen Rock & Roll, The Highlevel, Mean Blue Planets, Rosie & Tru Kin, Elias Khouri Band, MEM3 and Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers.

A SUPER JAM finale will feature Krenn, Rosie, Khouri and Grushecky, all taking the stage together.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
