Rock n Rad is a 1980's & 90's themed car show event featuring live music, a concert and a driving tour that will launch August 29, 2021 in Pittsburgh' Hartwood Acres.
Do you realize that you can now get antique plates for cars made in 1994? 25 years may not seem that long ago to some, but to others it's by-gone era with the growing following.
Several people in local Western Pa and West Virginia Car Clubs had been interested in attending a Rad er car show but discovered that that many where not friendly to out-of-town guests: There was not a host hotel or any help for visitors.
Bernie Martin, from Concours LLC, was asked if he was interested in lending a hand with planning and that's how Concours LLC got involved.
"Thats what we set Concours LLC up to do. Develop new automotive events!" according to Bernie.
"We're using the Doubletree Hilton in Cranberry Twp, PA as our host hotel. We just used the same facility last summer for the Alfa Romeo Owners Club 2020 Convention and they really work well with automotive events."
"We then turned to Allegheny Country Parks which hosts a series of free concerts on Sundays in the Summer at Hartwood Acres. We suggested we wanted to bring Rad Era cars and park in the grassy parking area used for the Polo Matches. We asked if they could book us a Rad Era band for the evening."
"In other words, lets have an 80's - 90's themed car show in the afternoon and let the audience hang around into the evening and put down their blankets in the natural amphitheater of Hartwood Acres. The team at Allegheny County Parks was excited and enthusiastic to make it happen and things really just fell in to place from there!" said Bernie
Arrangements have already been made to install a second stage just for the Rock n Rad event and there will most definitely be Rad Era music all day.
Other things in the works include awards and some special display cars.
Pre-Registration is only $20 per car and will include some special collectible gift bag items.
Sponsor tents are available. The tents are uniquely situated to be at the crest of the Hartwood Ampitheatre bowl which is also the crest of the hill for the car show as well. It presents a very unique opportunity to entertain your customers for an entire day at very unique event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 412.996.5700 for more information.
