Pittsburgh Blues Festival

Namast'ay Outdoors: Social Club July 24

Jul 23, 2015

With the weather warming, the rain reducing and summer in full swing, many events are moving outside this weekend!

With names like Los Lonely Boys and Tab Benoit the 19th annual Pittsburgh Blues Festival is bound to be good, but the true measurement of the event's success is what it does for the community. The three-day music festival serves as the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s largest fundraiser of the year.

“My mantra is no child hungry,” said festival chairman Ron Esser. “One in seven children in this area goes to bed hungry every night; we can’t have that.”
