Monday, June 14, 2021

Saturday, June 19, the Saturday Night Market returns for a 5-month run in Market Square, featuring the return of the popular Downtown Pittsburgh Sound series of free weekly concerts on the Pittsburgh City Paper Stage. The Saturday Night Market offers artisan goods from some of Pittsburgh’s most creative independent vendors selling artisan crafts, fashion, art, jewelry, photography, and small batch food.

“The relaunch of our Saturday Night Markets is a wonderful return to normalcy, as we welcome artisan vendors back into Market Square every weekend,” said Jeremy Waldrup, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership. “The Night Markets also offer a fantastic platform for live local music in the heart of our city, and a great complement to the wave of Downtown restaurants roaring back to life.”

This season, Night Market music co-presenters include Mr. Smalls, Driving While Black Records, MCG Jazz, Women Who Rock, Moondogs, YMCA Lighthouse, and the Pittsburgh City Paper.

The Night Market’s season opening performances include:

  • June 19: Mr. Small’s AcoustiCafé featuring Najj Andrea and Special Guests
