Sounds Around Town

Sounds Around Town

WQLN’s Sounds Around Town series of free concerts and TV & radio broadcasts, launched in 2014, will return with five free Friday evening concerts, July 12 to August 9, outdoors at WQLN, 8425 Peach St., Erie, (indoors in case of inclement weather), featuring all local bands.

Each year, over 1,000 music lovers of all ages enjoy WQLN’s Sounds Around Town free concerts in the picturesque setting of WQLN’s wooded pavilion. The public is once again invited and encouraged to bring their picnic blankets and festival chairs for five family-friendly evenings of local entertainment.

Free samples of beer, coffee, and Smith's products, courtesy of Erie Beer Company, Mill Creek Coffee Company, and Smith's Provisions will also be available.

As an added bonus, you'll get a peek at the behind-the-scenes operation of WQLN-TV and Radio production. We'll record the concerts live and air them on WQLN TV on Thursday nights this summer and on WQLN Radio throughout the coming year.

Showtime for each 60- to 90-minute concert is 7:30pm
WQLN Television & Radio production will begin at 6:00pm, and guests are invited to come early.

Cost: FREE
