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.

Worldwide Day of Play is Nickelodeon's summer-long play campaign, a slime-filled cross-country tour that celebrates all the ways kids love to play. As part of the net’s Worldwide Day of Play (WWDoP) initiative, the tour will bring activities to events in Phoenix, Ariz.; St. Louis, Mo.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Oakland, Calif.; and Brooklyn, N.Y., leading up to Nick’s 15th annual Worldwide Day of Play on Saturday, Sept. 29, when Nickelodeon and its sister channels–Nick Jr., Nicktoons, TeenNick and NickMusic–will suspend programming and host grassroots activities with its partners across the U.S. to encourage kids to go outside and get active.

On Sept. 29, Nickelodeon will commemorate its 15th annual Worldwide Day of Play celebration when the network will once again suspend programming across Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, TeenNick and NickMusic, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. (ET/PT), in order to encourage kids to go outside and get active. Worldwide Day of Play is part of Nickelodeon’s global ongoing health and wellness efforts and continues the network’s legacy of promoting positive messages to its viewers. To date, Nickelodeon has held WWDoP events in Argentina, Colombia, Belgium, Mexico, Brazil, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Poland, Germany, Italy, Russia and more.

Worldwide Day of Play was created by Nickelodeon in conjunction with its “Let’s Just Play” campaign. The annual event is designed to encourage children and adults to turn off the television and play, especially outdoors.
