Comcast Light Up Night
November 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Downtown is the place to be on Friday, Nov. 22, when Pittsburgh officially welcomes the holidays during its 59th Annual Light Up Night. There’s so much happening, it will be a challenge to take it all in. The festivities get underway at noon with the dedication of the crèche at U.S. Steel Tower, followed by seven tree lightings and a variety of entertainment across Downtown.
Bring your dancing shoes. Adam Lambert headlines the Comcast Main Stage with Joe Grushecky and the Nox Boys opening the show. Beauty Slap takes over the BNY Mellon New Music Stage with its funky blend of brass and dance. Some of Pittsburgh’s iconic jazz players will present MCG Jazz Presents: The Music of Fred Rogers on the EQT Jazzmasters Stage.
Daniel Tiger will join the likes of Dwayne Dolphin and Daniel May in a very Pittsburgh tribute. Indoor music includes the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s free pop-in mini-concerts of holiday music at Heinz Hall. Trust Oasis offers a DJ dance party within a large-scale art installation at 133 Seventh St.
The Roberto Clemente Bridge will be transformed into a snow-filled winter wonderland as part of the Xfinity Experience. Sip free hot cocoa and watch a live stream of Light Up Night images.
Fifth Avenue Place, One Oxford Centre and PPG Place will host live music and free family activities. Watch ice carving demonstrations. Catch the rooftop fireworks and jumbotron show at 7 p.m. featuring Mr. McFeely of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.”
Over 25 food trucks will be parked in three locations to keep appetites sated throughout the night.
The evening ends at 9:30 p.m. with the BNY Mellon Fireworks Finale choreographed to holiday tunes and launched from the Allegheny River.
