Concerts, Outdoor Dining, Rocking Chairs, and a new Gift Shop

Summer is officially here and Plum Street in historic Elizabeth Borough is the place to be. Residents and visitors to the buzzing business district can experience live entertainment, shopping, dining, and much more in the growing river town community.

Free Live Music Every Thursday
The Elizabeth Area Development Corporation is hosting the ninth season of the popular “Sounds Like Summer on Plum” Concert series. Concerts run every Thursday from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and grab food and drink from local restaurants and eateries. Each week features a different band from classic rock, dance, country, and much more. The concerts are free for all to enjoy. The concerts run weather permitting through August 30 with a bonus Friday on July 20. To see a full list of musicians, visit

Rockin’ (Chairs) on the Mon
Attendees to the weekly concert series will have fun colorful seating options this summer to enjoy the activities within the business district. “MonValleyRocks” is a new public art project that places brightly colored and artistic rocking chairs among local shops and the popular riverfront. Plain rocking chairs have been painted in eye-catching colors and vibrant designs to take in the views and enjoy the outdoors. Chairs will be on display and rocking during events and rotate among storefronts into the fall.

This project was made possible with support of the Mon River Towns Program and funding support from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation. Find a chair, relax and rock, and share your photos on social media with #MonValleyRocks.

New Gift Shop Opening Sunday July 1
Over the last two years, five new businesses have opened and expanded in Downtown Elizabeth. That list about to grow with Teal Lotus Gift Shop, right on Plum Street. Teal Lotus Gift Shop features local crafters and artisans from across the region. Teal Lotus Gift Shop is a fun and funky gift shop, that is unparalleled in this town and most surrounding towns. They will carry a wide variety of gifts from candles and home decor, to jewelry and clothing, pet and kid items and much more—all handmade locally.

Their grand opening will be held on Sunday July 1 starting at 11:00 am and will include concessions from K-Dogs-N-At, live music by Ezekiel, facepainting by PGH Party Creations, plus other giveaways.
