The CitiParks Office of Special Events invites musicians, entertainers, and food vendors to complete an interest form for the 2023 summer events season.

Local bands, orchestras, and other musical artists are encouraged to complete the online musician call form to express interest in performing in approximately two-hour concerts at city-sponsored events. The vendor call form seeks food and beverage providers for onsite sales to eventgoers. All genres and types of musicians, cuisine, and beverages are welcome to submit their information for consideration.

The Office of Special Events has produced free summer musical series in various CitiParks venues for over 40 years, including three summer concert series: Bach, Beethoven, & Brunch, Stars at Riverview Jazz, and Reservoir of Jazz. These events typically feature local musicians as well as food and beverage vendors from the area.

“We look forward to continuing to work with our local artistic talent and small businesses this year, offering welcoming experiences in our city’s neighborhoods and parks,” said Kathryn Vargas, City of Pittsburgh Director of Parks and Recreation.

Interested parties may submit the respective form at These forms will remain open throughout the summer, however, priority for summer 2023 programming will be given to submissions received by March 15. While completing the form does not guarantee a contracted performance or vending space, the Office of Special Events will keep a list of all submissions for future events.
