Race Car Parade & Driver Reception

Friday, August 2, 2024

In 2024 The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Racer Parade & Reception is moving from Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill into Oakland.  Vintage racers will drive along the track and exit at Phipps Conservatory.

Our vintage racers depart the paddock in parade formation from the starting grid at 6:15, right after the driver’s meeting ends at 6:00. We encourage them to make the trip in their race cars. You can drive up in your support vehicle too, but we ask that you not park with the race cars. The event runs from 6:30 until 8:30 PM. Exact location and details to be announced.

Friday’s parade and car show are open to the public and there is no charge to come and watch. This is a great way to meet our drivers. Please join us for this preview of the cars that will race through Schenley Park on the weekend.
