Weather Permitting

Shadyside Nursery
Sundays through September
5—9 p.m.

Ushering in a new season of bands, brews and backyard fun—and squashing those Sunday blues—Weather Permitting is back with its fifth annual summer concert series.

Every Sunday through September, revelers of all ages will flock to cozy Shadyside Nursery—tucked behind the eclectic Ellsworth Ave. corridor—to wind down the weekend with nature, music and communing.

For its season opener, Weather Permitting is kicking things off with live music by good-time country and swing ensemble, The Turpentiners, street folk group Cousin Boneless and a solo set by Zoob.

Amidst the urban green space, attendees can buy dinner from the Brassero Grill, Steer & Wheel, Piebald and Stickler’s Ice Pops food trucks. For the 21+ crowds, there will be refreshing craft brews and lively rounds of Stump and Cornhole.

The kiddos can run around and play with squirt guns, hula hoops and giant Jenga games, and hop into the sandbox and City of Play Gaga Pit at what is always a welcoming and inclusive event.

Mark your calendar now for June 18 edition featuring Beauty Slap, Lone Pine String Band and Grant Street Grifters.

Admission is $10 for adults; free for kids.
