The Portland Roadster Show has been owned and produced by the Multnomah Hot Rod Council since 1956


About the Portland Roadster Show

Since 1956,  the "All Volunteer" Portland Roadster Show has heralded the arrival of the hot rodding season. Known as the best show of its kind in the West,  the Portland Roaster Show has gained national stature over the past seven decades as one of the premiere hot rodding shows in the United States.

Through the decades, PRS has displayed the “automotive art”  of craftsmen and hobbyists through their vision and passion of the automobile.  Attracting professional builders, custom collections and industry personalities, the show also features suppliers, vintage automobilia, model car expositions and the “High School Challenge”.

The Multnomah Hot Rod Council welcomes you to join us as we present the next Portland Roadster Show at the Portland Exposition Center
