Last call for discounted tickets for the 34th Annual Pittsburg Seafood and Music Festival held on September 8-9.
Hosted by the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce, tickets are just $10 through July 31. Starting August 1, tickets jump to regular priced $15.
This past week, the Chamber announced that Bay Area native Sheila E will headline the festival on Saturday, Sept. 8. Most recently, she released the album Iconic: Message for America. The world-class drummer and percussionist has collaborated with artists such as Prince, Marvin Gaye and Gloria Estefan. Meanwhile, in 1984, her debut album “The Glamorous Life” was a Grammy Award-nominated top 10 hit of the same name, plus a second top 40 single.
On Sunday, September 9, Santana fans are in for a treat as Caravanserai (a Santana tribute band) will perform. They are billed as the top Santana tribute band in the world.
A full schedule of artists and times are anticipated being released in the coming weeks.
This favorite East County festival, that hosts over 30,000+ patrons, includes music, entertainment, incredible food vendors, wine and beer, arts and craft vendors, and a variety of business vendors. There will also be a full-size carnival, and jet ski races on the Delta – not to mention a full schedule of entertainment, events, and a special headline entertainer – to be released at a later date.
One change this year is there will be NO downtown lot parking. In response, the Chamber has partnered with Tri Delta Transit who will offer FREE shuttles for Seafood Festival patrons at Los Medanos College (700 E Leland Rd, Pittsburg, CA). They also encourage patrons to ride BART as Tri Delta Transit will have a shuttle stop to pick up attendees from the BART Station in Pittsburg- Pittsburg Center Bart.
