BNY Mellon presents JazzLive
JazzLive is a year-round FREE live jazz series taking place at The Cabaret at Theater Square, Backstage Bar, and Katz Plaza*. Open to the public, this popular Pittsburgh Cultural Trust music series showcases some of the region's finest jazz musicians every Tuesday from 5pm - 11pm in the heart of the Cultural District.

Allegheny Observatory
Although the observatory is located in a public park the building is owned and operated by the University of Pittsburgh. Tours of the building are offered April through the end of October.  The reason for this is the tour group spends a considerable part of the tour inside the telescope domes and the temperature inside the dome is the same as the outdoor air.  During the winter months the cold air can be a problem for most people.  Even in the summer months clear nights can be quite chilly, dress warmly.
The tours are free of charge but you must have a reservation.

The Big Mac Museum
The world’s most popular sandwich, the Big Mac, was created 40 years ago in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Say cheese in front of the largest Big Mac replica and learn the history of the famous sandwich. Take a bit with the inventor too.
Check out the high tech displays and the state of the art playhouse.

Allegheny County Summer Concert Series
Allegheny County Summer Concert Series Allegheny County offers a variety of free concerts and performances each summer at parks and other locations throughout the county.

First Fridays at the Frick
Experience the culture and refinement of the Gilded Age at the Frick Art & Historical Center, located on beautifully landscaped gardens in Pittsburgh's East End. The museum and its multiple collections are the legacy of Helen Clay Frick, daughter of Henry Clay Frick, one of America's greatest industrialists and art collectors.

On the first Friday of each month, June through September, you won’t want to miss the summer concert series. Pack your own picnic or plan to sample selections from The Café.
