A stroll through Sewickley’s unparalleled business district Sept. 28-29 will find the best the village has to offer in art, music and food.

The Sewickley Art & Music Festival highlights the charm and flair of Broad Street where hundreds of visitors can catch a glimpse of art, snack on hand-held food and drink from a variety of craft brews (for those 21 and older.)

An eclectic mix of music will waft through the business corridor, highlighted by well-known rockers like Joe Grushecky, Jim Krenn and the Granati Brothers.
