July 24/25, 2021 Weekend
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is preparing to get back on track this year. Participants and fans will be pleased to hear that we are planning to resume our Race Week events. These plans are all subject to the evolving covid protocols. The PVGP is committed to making the health and safety of our community and participants our top priority.
Each July, Schenley Park is the scene of one of the area’s largest car shows. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix stages an International Car Show – a combined show of 20 separate displays featuring more than 2,000 cars. It’s a weekend show open to everyone – no invitation is needed. All makes, all years, all countries, are welcome, whether or not you’re with a car club. You’ll be a part of the show with the best parking spot all weekend to watch the vintage races on the streets surrounding the golf course. Shine up your ride and be a part of the show!
The entrance to International Car Show is at the top of Schenley Drive where it intersects Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill, just below the Schenley Park Golf Course clubhouse.
Gates open at 9:30 AM and Car Shows run from 10:30 AM until 5:00 PM on the weekend.
Cost – Registration opens in March
The cost to participate in the International Car Show is just $50 with early registration discounts and includes your weekend car display spot, a PVGP race program and a car decal. Online registration closes at midnight on Thursday, July 22, after which participants must pay at the gate in Schenley Park upon entry and the price increases to $60. We strongly encourage you to pre-register here now to assure you get a spot in the car show and to speed up the entry process. This is a charity fundraiser – refunds and single day discounts are not available.
