The Story

Weather Permitting is a weekly outdoor concert series held at the Shadyside Nursery. Each Sunday, the nursery transforms into a vibrant event space that features bands, beer, food trucks and a marketplace. We have have squirt gun battles, games, and hula-hoop fun for kids of all ages – last year we even let the kids do some karaoke. More than just an event, this collaboration of local folks was built with the intention of supporting and promoting small businesses and creating an immersive experience for visitors. We kicked this party off in Summer of 2013.

OUR REACH… Each week our average attendance is between 150-300 people.  We have hosted bands from all over the world but mostly feature local acts.  With a partnership with local food trucks and like minded businesses our social media outreach efforts were seen weekly by at least 3,000 local Pittsburgh folks. We maintained a solid social media campaign throughout the summer and we were featured in the Pittsburgh City Paper. The Weather Permitting team also collaborated on some other events, including Pittsburgh Abides (a Lebowski fest), ensuring that the Weather Permitting name was always plastered on posters all over town. We are currently looking for local green businesses that want to advertise with us on flyers, social media, and on our website. While the event itself is the cornerstone of Weather Permitting, the intent is to provide small, local businesses with the opportunity to reach our network of attendees and supporters. If interested, please contact us at wepermitpgh@gmail.com for more information.

The Venue

Since April 2011, brothers Bill Brittain and Mike Georges have worked hard to provide the Shadyside community with quality plants, gardening supplies and landscaping services. The nursery has evolved into a multi-use green space that houses two additional small, local businesses: Shadyside Worms and BeeBoy hives & honey. Proud to play hosts to this weekly event, Bill and Mike are responsible for transforming the nursery space into an outdoor event space (and then back again) each week. On Sundays, you can find them instigating squirt gun battles and showing off their hula-hooping skills.

The Shadyside Nursery is available to rent for private parties, fundraisers, cook outs, anniversary & birthday parties. Are you looking for a unique outdoor venue for your next event? Email us at wepermitpgh@gmail.com for pricing and details.

On Sundays, she can be found bossing Bill around, crossing things off of the to-do list on her clipboard, or dancing near the front of the stage.
