A Spectacular Grand Prix Car Show at the Terminal in the Strip District

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix and the Terminal in the Strip will host a distinct car show in front of the Terminal Building on Smallman Street between 16th and 18th Streets. This promises to be a special display of race and exotic cars, including PVGP race cars and will include the 2023 Corvette Z06 Sweepstakes car that the PVGP is giving away in September.

According to Albert Heiles, PVGP volunteer and director of the new show “this will be a showing of the best the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has to offer. There will be race cars that will compete in Schenley Park, exclusive show cars and some exquisite Ferraris – our 2023 Marque of the Year.”

The PVGP has invited the best cars to represent our event from the track and the showfield. Sorry – there are no spots available but please come down to see the show and shop and eat in the strip.

Markets at the Terminal
Markets at the Terminal also takes place that day and every Saturday from 10 AM – 2 PM. Shop local vendors outside the 18th Street Passageway while enjoying music by DJ Breis Gordan.

The car show and all of the activities are free and open to the public. Public Parking is available for spectators – there are 275 spaces in the parking lot behind the Terminal. Details

There is now an extensive list of retailers at The Terminal – 5 blocks of fun to be had in addition to the PVGP car show. Locally owned and operated!

“We are honored to sponsor and host Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix’s luxury vintage car show at The Strip District Terminal this year,” said Dean Welch McCaffery Vice President of Pittsburgh Operations. “In addition to the world-class automotive showcase which the iconic five-block-long Terminal space is ideal for, we are proud to support the Grand Prix’s charitable mission which has a profound positive impact directly in our community.”

While the Strip Historic District initially developed in the mid-nineteenth century as an industrial center with numerous iron mills, foundries and factories, its street patterns and architecture reflects the neighborhood’s history as the epicenter of the regional produce industry and the hub for specialty food products. The Strip District Terminal opened in 1929 as the Pennsylvania Railroad Fruit Auction & Sales Building to serve the tri-state area as a produce distribution hub. Iconic in length and design, the terminal functioned as the economic heart of the Strip District for more than 40 years.

Located in Pittsburgh’s bustling Strip District neighborhood, the iconic Terminal was formerly the central hub for the regional wholesale produce industry. Chicago-based developer, McCaffery, in partnership with the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the City of Pittsburgh, has restored the historic building’s energy and vitality. Offering approximately 160,000-square-feet of new retail and restaurant experiences, improved pedestrian access, and a hub for community events, the expansive structure is, once again, a commercial, people-centric destination.
