Sewickley Heights has always been noted for its equestrian lifestyle and wonderful traditions. In the early 1900's it was the Riding & Driving Party, held the day before the annual horse show, that captivated everyone's interest.

In the spirit of this tradition, the Sewickley Heights History Center continues to host the Riding & Driving Party as an annual benefit. Held rain or shine on a Saturday in September, the benefit features a dazzling display of antique automobiles, horses, and carriages, combined with cocktails, dinner, and a band. Equestrian Exhibitions include a traditional display of jumping and dressage, as well as a mock hunt provided by the Sewickley Hunt and Hounds.

Supporting the Riding & Driving Party helps to maintain the admission-free Museum and contributes to the costs of adding new exhibits, lectures, and films, as well as to the expenses related to the popular Family Fun Days and Fall Festivals.
