About Sounds Around Town

WQLN's community performance series, Sounds Around Town, returns with a new lineup of regional performers. Sounds Around Town is a free, open-air community summer concert series held at WQLN’s wooded pavilion. 

Bring your blanket or beach chair and your appetite for beer, coffee, and Smith's products, courtesy of Erie Beer Company, Mill Creek Coffee Company, and Smith's Provisions. Then settle in for an evening of rock, jazz, bluegrass, and more. 

As an added bonus, you'll get a peek at the behind-the-scenes operation of WQLN-TV and Radio production. We'll record the concerts live and air them on WQLN-TV on Thursday nights this summer and on WQLN Radio throughout the coming year. 

Showtime for each concert is 7pm, outdoors at WQLN
(inside if the weather turns) 8425 Peach Street, Erie.
