Event Description

Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix
International Car Show and Race Weekend

July 23/24, 2022

This signature event of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix should be on your bucket list. Spectators browse the 3,000 vehicle car show and watch the vintage racing from the Bob O’Conner Golf Course at Schenley Park. The races are reminiscent of the sports car road racing that started back in the 40’s and 50’s at Watkins Glen and Elkhart Lake. The PVGP in Schenley Park remains the nation’s only vintage race held on city streets.

The races start at 8:30 am each day and run until approximately 5:00 pm. See Race Schedule. Car Show participants can enter the show grounds beginning at 9:30 am. To register your car for the International Car Show please visit our Registration Home.

The PVGP races through Schenley Park are considered by many drivers to be the most challenging race course worldwide. With 22 turns, 11 elevation changes, approximately 100 telephone poles, an expanse of stone wall and numerous manhole covers, it’s no wonder the 2.33-mile circuit tests driving skills and entertains crowds.

Charity Event
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association is a 501c3 charity that stages our event to raise funds that provide residential care, treatment, and support for individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities in the Pittsburgh region served by the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Merakey Allegheny Valley School. Since 1983 we have raised over $6 million.
Please help us to continue hosting this world-class event while raising important funds for individuals with autism!
