Sounds Around Town


Sounds Around Town is WQLN's series of free concerts and TV and radio broadcasts, outdoors at WQLN, 8425 Peach Street, Erie (indoors in case of inclement weather), featuring all local bands.

Each year, 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 invited and encouraged to bring their picnic blankets and festival chairs for four family-friendly evenings of local entertainment.

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

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

Cost: FREE
