Prices for Weekend Passes and Single Dances
If you can only can attend three dances but are still looking for a great deal, we have a 3-dance pass back by popular demand. At the price of $45, if you go to the Friday and Saturday night dances plus one other band dance, you'll save $15. Order online for will-call or buy at the door.
- Each pass can be used for any three separate dances across the weekend.
- Check in at the registration desk for each dance you attend.
- The pass you buy is non-transferable and must be used by you at all three dances.
- You can buy two passes however, and use the second pass to bring any friend with you to each dance.

WIN A FREE PITTSTOP PASS! In the spirit of Thanksgiving we are hosting a food drive for dollar donations online or canned goods brought in. Show compassion with a donation to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Every dollar donated online or canned item brought to Friday or Saturday PittStop dances will get you an entry into a drawing for a FREE PASS to NEXT YEAR'S PittStop. The more dollars or cans you give, the more entries you'll get. See Food Drive for more details.
PittStop is a dance weekend that specializes in one of the original styles of swing dance from the 1920’s and early 1930's called Lindy Hop. We strive to put on a great weekend and our priority is to have excellent live music with our favorite swing bands that are making music today. PittStop has been held annually since 2001 and every year hundreds of people travel from many states and several countries to join the hundreds more local dancers to enjoy this event. See our history!
PittStop’s goal is to be a welcoming, safe, inclusive and fun environment for dancers of all types, levels and abilities. To that end, we expect all attendees to be respectful of your fellow dancers, venue staff, and performers during the weekend. Please see our Safe Space & Inclusivity Policy.
