The Shakedown

August 9, 2017 - August 13, 2017


Wisconsin's largest traditional hot rod and custom show expands to a new, larger venue! More camping, more show cars, more vendors, and more to see and do at the Pioneer Airport on the EAA Grounds. Fly in a 1928 Tri-Motor Ford or 1929 Travel Air open-cockpit bi-plane during the show! See hundreds of 1964 and older modified vehicles, with pre-1965 styling. A special section for all show vehicles up to 1975. Also see minibike races, vintage bicycles, vintage campers, famous hot rod swap meet and dozens of vendors selling everything from vintage clothing to new and used auto parts. Each night at dusk there is a car flame throwing demonstration. We are giving away a 1950 Chevrolet. Ticket proceeds go 100% to charity. Weekend camping, with or without power and water, available on site. Over 20 music acts performing on multiple stages for three days. Great food and beverages serviced from breakfast to late night. Student and Military discounts available.
