As WYDaily reported Saturday, the PIPE concert opens at 3 p.m. and will take place on High Street’s lawn/green space. It will feature local musician Johnny St. Clair who will be opening for Good Shot Judy at around 3:15 p.m. Good Shot Judy will take the stage from 4-7 p.m.

This will be the 12th year that Housing Partnerships, Inc. is hosting the PIPE concert. The concert was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and has not returned to the area for two years.

“Bringing this concert back to the community after a two-year hiatus due to Covid [COVID-19] is not only allowing us to give back to the community in which we serve, but it’s also bringing back a sense of normalcy to the Williamsburg community as this event has been happening for 13 years!” Executive Director of Housing Partnerships, Inc. Brandie Weiler said to WYDaily.

According to Housing Partnerships, Inc., “All the proceeds for the concert will go towards PIPE (Providing Indoor Plumbing for Everyone) which provides gap funding to help our neighbors in need for those lacking or have inadequate plumbing. All donations will stay local to the Historic Triangle.”

The event is scheduled to take place rain or shine and there will be food as well as both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Programs offered by Housing Partnerships, Inc. include emergency home repairs, Indoor Plumbing Rehabilitation, and ADA modifications for those who own their home and qualify for low-to-moderate-income level.
