Art and music will take center stage on April 23 at a festival to benefit Homestead's Rivers of Steel Heritage Corporation.

The Steel to Sustainable Festival will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. April 23 at the Carrie Furnaces historic site near the end of the Rankin Bridge and will include musical performances by Red Room Effect, Colonel Eagleburger's Highstepping Goodtime Band, Daily Grind and more.

The festival is designed to take place to coincide with the same weekend as Earth Day, which is April 22.

The event also will feature a Hard Hat Art Show featuring local Pittsburgh artists in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the hard hat.

General admission tickets are $20. Student tickets are available for $15. Student ID must be presented at the door.  
Food will be served by a variety of food trucks, while people 21 years and older also may purchase beer, with ID, a spokeswoman said. Visitors should plan to bring cash and wear sturdy, comfortable shoes. There is no re-entry and attire is "casual."

For more information or to buy tickets, visit the event's website.
