First Fridays at the Frick

First Niagara

One of Pittsburgh’s most popular and enduring summertime events is our summer concert series. We sincerely thank First Niagara for returning for a fifth consecutive year to provide the support that makes the season possible.

All concerts begin at 7:00 p.m. Suggested donation is $5; children free.

2015 season

If you're planning to come to the concert next Friday evening, please be aware that PennDOT will be doing road work near the corner of Penn Avenue and Washington Boulevard beginning at 8:00 p.m.

This shouldn't create any traffic issues prior to the concert
, but beginning at 8, Washington Boulevard will be reduced to single-lane, alternating traffic until 6:00 a.m. Saturday. Police officers will be on hand to direct traffic throughout the night.

More information is available on PennDOT's website, at
