Tune-Up Party @ the SouthSide Works

Wednesday, July 21, 2021

The Grand Prix’s Tune-Up Party has been a popular Race Week event since it was created back in 2006. It debuted at Bossa Nova downtown on 6th Street and grew so large that it spread across the river to the Roberto Clemente Bridge and PNC Park, then to Heinz Field. The party is now shifting gears and moving to the SouthSide Works! Hundreds of cars will gather for a fabulous car show including race cars, exotics, antiques and show cars for this exciting street festival in the streets surrounding McCormick & Schmick’s, Cheesecake Factory and Hofbräuhaus.

The Bricks to Perform Live

The Bricks are an acoustic Trio who have grown up in the ’70s when singer/songwriters were kings, and the music was timeless. They cover a lot of ground but focus mainly on classic hits and ‘B’ side tunes that you probably forgot about over the years. Their mission is to remind you of these tunes and restore some memories that may have faded. They will perform in the plaza beside the Hofbräuhaus during our event.
