Jam on Walnut is an AMAZING STREET Party where they shut down 5 BLOCKS of Walnut Street in Shadyside, Have BANDS, BEER, and Food! Usually gets about 5K people there!
This day's headliner is CHRIS HIGBEE who is a Regional Country/Rock Music Star who sings amazingly!
I'll be grilling at corner of Filbert & Walnut Street. Stop on by and say hi! Our Pop-up Tent is grilling Gyro's, Burgers, Dawgs, Halushki, Hummus N Pita and more!
Parking is on street or in the Shadyside Parking lot behind Walnut street! GET THERE EARLY. I also recommend parking on Elsworth Avenue and walking to Walnut Street.
$5 to get a wristband to drink beer (benefits Cystic Fibrosis Foundation). But if you don't want to drink, it's a FREE event!
Happy Hour is from 7pm to 9pm w the Beer Trucks, then the Bands go on from 9pm to 11pm. FYI Parking is a BEAR if you get there late, so GET THERE EARLY!
Frank's contact Phone is[masked] for texting only! Remember i might be busy from 6pm to 11pm so if you have questions text earlier!

Here's a photo of Chris Higbee on the roof of a building last year (he wasn't allowed to do this ;-) ).
So far we have 35+ going from all the meetups. My best recommendations is to park around Shadyside earlier about 7:30pm ish. Walk to Walnut Street so you'll get there at 8pm which gives you a chance to check out Walnut Street and have a beer or some food (btw did i mention a food stand at Filbert and Walnut Street? ;-) ). Visit and say hi. Chris Higbee really will get the place Rocking and there will be about 3-5 thousand people there so find a strategic spot to watch the music.
