Pittsburgh is such an awesome city to live in. This summer is no exception. Here’s a bunch of free events you can attend. They’ll help you enjoy the summer without busting the bank.
Movies in the Park
Grab a blanket and watch a movie outside! To find one in your area, do a search for “movies in the park (your township or borough).” If you’re in the city, there’s a showing pretty much every night of the week. You can check that out here.
Free Swimming Camp
Seriously. Free. For ages 6-15. Session 1 is already almost over, but session 2 is from July 7-18. Make sure to call to reserve your spot. You can find more information on the Citiparks Aquatics page.
Concerts in the Park
Every Tuesday through July 22, you can catch a free concert at Pavilion 1 at Hopewell Park. The rain location is Hopewell Memorial Jr. High. Get more details like who’s playing here. Cranberry Township also has them on Thursday nights and Fridays at lunchtime at the Rotary Amphitheater.
Outdoor Discovery Series
Check out Butler County’s Facebook page for weekly insights as to specific events. But you can catch them every Thursday from noon to 6:30 now through August 14 at Alameda park.
Fish for Free!
If fishing’s your thing, but you don’t have a license, you can do it anyways all day on July 4 on any of Pennsylvania’s waterways. Get more info here.
Bach, Beethoven, and Brunch
A very cool classical music concert series that happens every Sunday in Point Breeze. The music is free, but I’m unclear on the food part. You are allowed to bring your own food in, though. You can get more info here.
Head to South Park’s Wave Pool at 9 pm on July 11 for a night of checking out the cosmos! More information here. I’d recommend calling first to confirm.
Old Time Fiddler’s Jamboree
Good family event regardless of how old your kids are. This year it’s taking place from 2-5pm on Sunday, July 20th at the Fayette County Fairgrounds. Call (724) 439-2465 for more info.
How do you have fun in the summer? Does it turn into a spendy time of year or are you surprised at how far your money can stretch?
