Tune-Up Party @ Heinz Field

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 6:00 – 9:00 PM

Our Fabulous Tune-Up Party has moved to Heinz Field. There is double the space we had on the bridge to handle this growing event. Heinz Field will be the new headquarters with Car Showcase surrounding the stadium. The always popular race car corral will be on the plaza in front of the stadium and the Riverwalk and will be expanded to include more specialty and exotic cars. The Car Showcase will be on the plazas, Art Rooney Avenue and General Robinson Street.

Welcome to our new Tune-Up lead sponsor: Bank of America Merrill Lynch! They have stepped up their commitment to the PVGP.

The best part is that more people can participate in the evening’s Car Showcase. When you register on-line you can also purchase a reserved space within the Car Showcase to display your special vehicle.

2018 PVGP Tune-Up @ Heinz Field

Game Day Spread

Heinz Field is putting on a Game Day spread on multiple stations throughout the Champions Club:
– South of the Border fajitas, quesadillas & nachos
– Sliders
– Farmer’s Market crudités w/hummus & pesto
– Intermezzo Antipasto bar w/Italian meats, cheeses, roasted peppers, crackers & bread
– Bavarian pretzel sticks w/garlic herb dip
– Nacho cheese dip & tortilla chips, red pepper hummus w/pita chips


Cost is $50 per person and includes admittance into the Champions Club at Heinz Field with complimentary heavy hors d’oeuvres. Cash bars will be located throughout the plaza and within the club. The entire club and surrounding streets and plazas are reserved for our event. This event raises money for charity so you will not able to park in the show, walk through the event or enter the Club without a pass. Drink coupons will be available on the plaza and there will be five bars set-up inside and outside. Children 12 and under are only $25.

Register in two different ways:

  1. Tune-Up Party without parking in the Car Showcase. Individual are $50 each.
  2. If you wish to participate in the Car Showcase it is $25 but you must also purchase at least one pass into the event so the minimum charge would be $75 for a parking spot and one entry. Two people and a parking spot would be $125, three would be $175, etc.


Plans are to have all vehicles (show cars and race cars) enter from General Robinson Street – the entry gate will be behind Stage AE. This will also be the only entrance for anyone who has preregistered/paid ahead of time.

There will be pedestrian entrances at the intersection of Art Rooney Avenue & North Shore Drive and another down on the Riverwalk (underneath North Shore Drive).

Race Cars and Trailers
Anyone with a race car or a trailered vehicle can begin to load in at 3:00 pm from General Robinson Street – there are no other entrances. There will be limited parking for race car trailers at the end of Art Rooney Avenue.

Car Showcase
All vehicles that are parking in the Car Showcase must be preregistered and can begin to park at 5:00 pm. Enter from General Robinson Street – there are no other entrances. The bars will not open until 5:30 pm and the food will not be served until 6:15 pm but you are welcome to move in starting at 5:00 pm – please do not show up early, the street will not be closed and we are not permitted to block the street until 5:00 pm.
