Elias Khouri will play on the Allegheny Overlook stage on June 24th

On June 24th, the grand opening ceremony began for the Allegheny Overlook, a new downtown pop-up park overlooking the Allegheny River. The celebrations at Allegheny Overlook continue throughout the weekend with live music, plus a beer garden and food vendors as you groove to the local musicians.

The pop-up park takes over small sections of Fort Duquesne Boulevard and Sixth Avenue that are closed and feature a living street mural designed by Pittsburgh artist and muralist Janel Young. The mural and the pop-up park will be open to the public until autumn. On June 24th, Jim Donovan & the Sun King Warriors played a show opened by guitarist Elias Khouri.

Pittsburgh City Paper announces the rest of the Allegheny Overlook’s grand opening ceremony for a weekend June 24-26 filled with live music and more.
