The spirit of Thanksgiving is all about showing gratitude for your blessings and giving to those who are less fortunate. You can express your thanks this holiday season through an organization that is already a part of your passion – the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.
The PVGP has grown into a national automotive festival with thousands of show cars and hundreds of race cars celebrated at a dozen unique events. With all that excitement our charity mission can sometimes get passed by. We were founded on, and still embrace, our founding mission from 1982 – to stage a world class vintage automotive event to raise much needed funds for local individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities.
Thanks to you, we have achieved both of those objectives. Our event is one of the largest and best known in the world and we have raised over $5 million for our charity partners.
If you make charitable donations on Thanksgiving through the national day of giving on #GivingTuesday please consider the PVGP and its charities. Together we can help individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities here in the Pittsburgh region and continue to stage our incredible event.
The PVGP is thankful for everyone who makes this grand event possible. From our enthusiastic volunteers who work year round, to our unselfish racers and car show participants who share their vehicles with us, to our generous sponsors who provide financial support and are also a vital part of the show.
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, presented by the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Foundation, is the country’s only vintage street race and one of the premier automotive events in the world. 2020 will be our 38th consecutive year of hosting a 10-day motorsport festival from July 17 through 26. It starts with our Historic Races at Pitt Race Complex and builds throughout the week with car shows, parades, a Blacktie Gala, a Tune-Up Party, including the Passport to Elegance Jet Center Party. The event culminates with our signature vintage races through the stone wall, hay bale lined streets of Schenley Park surrounding a golf course with 2,500 show car shows and 200,000 spectators on the July 25/26 weekend.
