Outdoor Performances at the Festival

Free outdoor performances

Artists from around the world and here at home showcase music, dance, and more on our outdoor stages.

Featured outdoor performance: Squonk Opera’s Cycle Sonic

“Chock full of joy, Cycle Sonic burns brightly with the fires of imagination and ingenuity.”
– Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Cycle Sonic celebrates bicycles with human-powered stages, propelled by our original chamber rock music… and our own legs!

Sprouting bulb-horns and whirligigs, whistles and bells, these parade floats become instruments of music through the swirl and thump of wheel and pedal. A pageant of double-decker bike-stages creates a merry Cycle Sonic ruckus.

Giant, animated bikers circle the audience, with backdrops of undulating flags and 20-foot legs pumping with the rhythm of sustainable power. With no carbon footprint, Cycle Sonic combines the thrill of a live concert with the world of everyday transit.
