About

Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival

The Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival (PIJF) presented by Citizens Bank is a labor of love for the August Wilson Cultural Center. We invite people from around the world, speaking different languages, sharing a common bond and love for this music to spend the weekend with us in Pittsburgh. Everything we do at the August Wilson Cultural Center is rooted in the complexities and brilliance of African American culture and the African Diaspora. PIJF is committed to celebrating cultures of the world and connecting the notes that make us ONE; we welcome everyone to celebrate with us.

Vibe is everything … “laid back, intimate and inviting” jam sessions, beer gardens, and concerts that flow from one groove to another style of music keep the PIJF fresh every year. The August Wilson Cultural Center is a state-of-the-art venue designed by award-winning architect Allison Williams. We are pleased to present free concerts in the streets and ticketed concerts in the August Wilson Cultural Center, along with educational opportunities for all ages; Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival is our gift to you.

We look forward to hosting you June 20-23, 2019.
