Sewickley Stampede & Roundup

Tuesday, July 18, 2023


Presented by Sewickley Porsche, this is a new event starting in 2023. the Stampede is a parade of cars through downtown Sewickley that starts at 5:30 PM.

Get ready for the Sewickley Stampede and RoundUp. It’s a street block party with race and exotic cars. Join us for an exclusive RoundUp at The Hotel and Rosa’s Cantina hosted by Robin Fernandez that will have you “Hootin’ and Hollerin’” for more.

The night begins with a “Rev Limiting”, “Rip Roaring” Stampede Parade of Cars through the downtown business district of Sewickley followed by the “Wrangling and Staging” of cars in front of the hotel.

Grab your best “Pardner” and come out to look at the cars on the street or purchase admission to the exclusive private party in The Hotel featuring an included light food menu, cash bar, and live music by “Max Kaplan and the Magics”, straight from Memphis, TN; all for the benefit of the PVGP Charities.


The Parade and Car Show are full, but you can purchase tickets to join the party at Rosa’a Cantina below. The party gets underway at 6:00 PM at the Hotel and Rosa’s Cantina at 509 Beaver Street in Sewickley. Robin Fernandez is working on a special menu. Like all Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix events, the proceeds benefit individuals with autism and intellectual/developmental disabilities.


When it comes to charm, Sewickley has it, from its bustling “village” of a business district to a range of great amenities, all within walking distance. Situated 11 miles northeast of downtown, on the Ohio River, this quaint borough of tree-lined streets with sidewalks is bordered by the neighboring boroughs of Edgeworth, Glen Osborne and, on the hill over-looking town, Sewickley Heights.

The PVGP is very excited to bring our Motorsport Festival to Sewickley.


Many thanks to Dotti & John Bechtol and Rosemary & Joe Mendel. They are the founders of the PVGP Tune-Up Party that started back in 2006 at Bossa Nova restaurant downtown. In the beginning, the Tune-Up was a small gathering of 75 people and a display of a dozen exclusive cars. The Tune Up Party has grown into a large event with several hundred cars and upwards of 500 participants along with hundreds of spectators.

The Bechtols and Mendels yearned to return to the small exclusive event that they started with their friend Robin Fernandez, who owned Bossa Nova along with Metropol and others. Robin recently opened The Hotel & Rosa’s Cantina in Sewickley and it is an ideal setting for an intimate party with an exclusive car show.

Thank You to Our Generous Sponsors


The Hotel & Rosa’s Cantina

Celebrate American History at the most legendary place in town, the Hotel & Rosa’s Cantina. With a hospitality career spanning nearly seven decades, restauranteur Robin Fernandez’s last rodeo is a tasteful nod to the American West.

From savory homemade soups to specially-blended brisket burgers and fresh salads, the Hotel treats customers to the American comfort food we’ve all come to know and love. The Hotel offers a little taste of Americana in a comfortable, western setting, while our outdoor dining area, Rosa’s Cantina Kitchen, serves up a host of Tex Mex favorites, including quesadillas, tacos, and fajitas. You are invited to this saloon setting for fresh and enjoyable comfort food, hand-crafted cocktails, and a wonderful selection of beers, bourbons, and tequila.

Giddy up!
