Millvale, a ‘rural town in an urban setting’ a bit north of Pittsburgh, is going to be filled with music on May 19th and 20th. The annual Millvale Music Festival is back again for 2023, showcasing local acts of all genres. The venues and streets will be rocking like never before. Another reason to go: it’s free!

The schedule is jam packed with over 300 musical acts. Performances will be on 28 stages. The event also has 60 visual artists, spoken word performers, comedians, and food trucks. It’s a fun summer atmosphere. One of the best parts about it? It’s all within 0.6 miles. The convenience is real! 

Their mission is “to create community-organized events that support and showcase local music, art, and entertainment at the fun and unique venues of Millvale.”

The two day stretch will have artists and bands playing across a number of venues: Caesar’s Alehouse, Grist House, Strange Roots, Mr. Smalls Theater, and so many more! It’s not often that you get to see so much local music all in one place. Both days have performances scheduled from 1pm – 11pm. It’s very possible that you’ll find your new favorite local act!

Millvale is home to Mr. Smalls Theater, which has national and local concerts each week, along with a professional recording studio. It’s great to see local acts having a chance to get more exposure and gain new fans, connecting with other bands, and becoming closer with the community.

Save the dates on Facebook and download their app (on the App Store or Google Play) in advance – it helps you personalize the festival experience by band name, venue, and/or genre!
