What kind of vehicles can I bring to the show?

The show is open to vehicles of all makes & models – all that we ask is that the mode of transportation that you'd like to share with the public, whether it is a bicycle, motor bike, car, pickup, bus tractor, etc has no leaks.

Is the show free?

The show is free for spectators. Vehicle registration is available for purchase.

Can I bring my dog?

Absolutely! All well-behaved pets are welcome.

How many cars are in the show?

The show generally registers between 450 and 550 cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles.

Is there anywhere to sit?

There are some benches in the park between the Renton Pavilion and S 3rd Street. If you want to find some shade to sit and enjoy the people watching we suggest you bring a folding chair or camping stool.

Is there food available?

In addition to the restaurants in downtown Renton we invite many food trucks to come to the show. Last year we had 5 food truck options.

What time does the show start?

The spectator hours are 10 am to 4 pm. Cars and vendors participating in the show should arrive starting at 8 am.

Where do we park if we are spectating?

The best parking options are along city streets south of S 3rd Street and west of Morris Ave in Renton. The show is located along S 3rd Street from Morris to Main Ave S and from S 2nd Street to Houser Way S.

Can I leave before the show ends?

Spectators can come and go as they please. Due to the amount of pedestrian traffic we cannot permit vehicles to leave early.

Online registration is closed, can I still get into the show?

If you missed the online registration period you can register on site the day of the show. See the registration page for details.

I registered for the show, but I cannot make it, can I get a refund?

Please submit a Contact Us (the link is in the footer) and we will see if that is possible. Our policy is not to provide refunds and we're raising money for Renton-area youth programs.

I registered, when do confirmation emails get sent?

A pre-show email is sent to all registered participants on Thursday before the show.

I registered but I missed the cut for a shirt or dash plaque, can I still get one?
