2018 Family Fest and Steelers Practice
August 19 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Steelers to host Family Fest at Heinz Field
Open practice at Heinz Field featuring music and fun for all ages
The Pittsburgh Steelers will host Family Fest at Heinz Field on Sunday, August 19, which will be highlighted by the team’s open training camp practice at the stadium. The event will run from 5-9 p.m., and admission is $10 for all fans.
This season, we are moving to a new mobile-only ticketing system for non-Season Ticket Holders. That means if you have purchased a single game ticket, you will need to have your ticket ready on your mobile phone in order to enter the stadium. Hard copy tickets are accepted at the gates but no tickets printed at home can be used to enter the stadium. To learn more about the new mobile ticketing system for Steelers games and events, visit HeinzField.com/steelersmobile.
Activities for Family Fest will take place outside on Art Rooney Avenue beginning at 3 p.m. and continue throughout Heinz Field in the FedEx Great Hall, the Ford Fan Zone and the West Concourse. This year’s Family Fest will welcome Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play that will feature a number of activations, including a slime booth, Nick Wave, Nick Bowling, Nick Tac Toe, Connect the Dots, Neighborhood Ford Store and a number of other family-friendly activities.
Fans will have the opportunity to take a photo next to all six of the team’s Lombardi Trophies in the FedEx Great Hall and meet Steelers alumni. In addition, fans can enter for the chance to win sideline passes to view practice from field level, a signed practice jersey from a Steelers player, or a trip for four to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.
Prior to Steelers’ player introductions before practice, a Parade of Champions March with Special Olympic Athletes, First Responders and members of the military will take place on the field.
At the conclusion of the event, fans can enjoy a special Zambelli Fireworks display.
The event will include a number of on-field performances by the Steeline Drumline, Bill Camp’s Frisbee Dogs, and other surprises. Steelers Alumni Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley will provide analysis from the Steelers Ford F-150 truck on the east sideline during practice.
Steelers Nation Unite will be recognizing a group of winners from this year’s second annual SNU Fan Awards, which honor some of the top fans from around Steelers Nation. The winners will be recognized on the field and on the scoreboard prior to the start of practice. Steelers Nation Unite members will also have a chance to score on-field experiences throughout the night. To learn more about the official home of Steelers Nation and join for free, fans can visit SteelersNationUnite.com or the Steelers Nation Unite page on the team’s official mobile app.
The Steelers’ open practice will be hosted inside Heinz Field. Normal policies and procedures for gate entry will be in effect, including the NFL’s Clear Bag Policy. All fans inside the stadium are expected to follow Heinz Field’s code of conduct, P.R.I.D.E.
