It’s an iconic Pittsburgh experience – Family-friendly festival, local Pittsburgh cuisine (of course featuring pierogis), drinks, entertainment from Johnny Angel & the Halos & the Polkamaniacs, and a marketplace to shop all things locally made.
Within that marketplace we’ll have 20+ local artisans to shop through along with some exclusive Great Yinzer Tailgate merchandise. Food trucks will be lined up for some nosh and Pittsburgh Brewing Co. will be there to pour some cold ones for the adults.
We can’t forget about the Little Yinzers so swing by our kids zone filled with Smiley Cookies, face painting, games and more.
Our friends Rachael and John of YaJagoff will be hosting a GREAT Yinzer Olympics featuring the Iron City Beer Can Race, Fort Pitt Bridge Twister, Pittsburgh Pretzel Jello Salad eating contest and more.
This day-long event brings together people from all over the region to celebrate their hometowns and the unique culture that makes this area so special. The event will take place on Saturday, November 4th in Southpointe Town Center.
More than just a tailgate, it is a celebration of all things Western Pennsylvania. The definition of the term “Yinzer” summarizes this ultimate fan experience best. A Yinzer is a local who strongly identifies with the nearby city of Pittsburgh and is often a sports enthusiast who proudly wears black and gold and shares in a common, unapologetic love for all things Pittsburgh.
The Great Yinzer Tailgate will feature all the fan favorites Western, PA has to offer. From sports legends and media influencers to business moguls, celebrities, entertainment, and more. You’ll also find the best of Pittsburgh’s food, wine, and spirits, as well as crafts, vendors, and more.
Whether you’re a lifelong resident or just passing through, you’re sure to feel the warmth and pride that defines this region.
