SHOW CARS PARADE INTO DOWNTOWN AND PARK AT PLAZAS THROUGHOUT THE CITY

Downtown DisplayIf you work downtown, Wednesday of Race Week is a great day to take a long lunch break. Nestled among the skyscrapers several of downtown’s most prominent addresses open their plazas to help us promote the upcoming car show. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix hosts a parade and 3 distinct car displays in the golden triangle. The parade starts across the river at Station Square, where cars stage in the parking lot next to the Gateway Clipper dock. Check-in opens at 8:30 am. – look for signs directing you. You don’t have to participate in the parade, you are permitted to go directly to your assigned car display location between 10:30 and 10:45 am. All cars must stay in place until 1:45 pm and depart plazas by 2:00 pm.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is excited to announce that a PVGP Race Week press conference will be held in Market Square at 11:15 AM.
