Summer Fridays at the Frick

The Frick is giving T.G.I.F a whole new meaning with Summer Fridays at the Frick! Starting today, June 23rd, and continuing until September 8th, you and your family can enjoy this outdoor-focused series every Friday from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. Located in Point Breeze and just a short distance from many Franklin West apartments, Fridays at the Frick ensure there’s always something to do on the start of every weekend – perfect for those warm nights you just can’t bear to stay inside!

Entertaining performances are featured every week, held at the North Lawn of the Frick grounds. Unfortunately, due to this Friday’s oh-so Pittsburgh weather, all outdoor activities have been cancelled. For the full schedule of upcoming events, visit here. Let’s home next week is sunnier!

 While you’d otherwise be enjoying the lush green surroundings, family-friendly activities, and exciting performances, you can also treat yourself to the remarkable dining options and wine bar – it is Friday after all! The Cafe at the Frick is open 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Featuring locally-sourced and a seasonal menu, The Cafe at the Frick always offers a unique dining experience. Reservations are recommended. Check out the cafe’s lunch and high tea times, too! Looking for something a bit more casual? Food trucks will be parked at Frick every Friday, so you can enjoy a picnic on the beautifully-landscaped grounds.

But, hey, even gloomy, rainy days can’t stop the fun! Explore the elegant, first-floor interior of the Frick’s family mansion, Clayton (pictured above) – free to public from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The Clayton shines as one of the most intact Gilded Age homes and a stunning look into American and regional architecture of the time.

Continue your cultural and historical journey at the art museum, The Frick Pittsburgh, open until 9:00 PM on summer Fridays! Built in 1969 by Helen Clay Frick, the daughter of Henry Frick, the museum is home to the Frick’s permanent collection of painting, sculpture, and decorative arts.

World-class temporary exhibitions also make it to the art museum. Currently, you can experience the compelling and intimate photographs by iconic American photographer, Irving Penn. With a career spanning seven decades, 140 outstanding photographs are on display – a captivating retrospective that simply cannot be missed.

The perfect solution to a rainy Friday evening? We think so! 

Anywhere you look on Frick’s 5-acre site, you’ll be met with verdant lawns, vibrant gardens, rich history, and smiling faces. If that doesn’t sound like an ideal Friday night, we don’t know what does. Happy summer, friends!
