About the Portland Roadster Show

Beginning in 1956, this show heralded the arrival of the hot rodding season both locally and regionally, with the best show of its kind in the West. Over the years it has gained national stature as one of the premiere hot rodding events in the United States. This year we will be presenting our 62nd Portland Roadster Show, and it gets bigger and better every year!

For 62 years, the Portland Roadster Show has presented the artistic efforts of skilled craftsman, and the hobbyist alike.  Displaying virtual "automotive art" crafted from the vision and passion of the automobile.

All of the outstanding cars, trucks, and motorcycles in our show, are painstakingly selected from hundreds of applications each year, to provide the best show possible.

Combined with displays from the finest builders and suppliers; along with vintage automobilia, model car expositions, and the creative efforts of our youth, in our "High School Challenge", the Portland Roadster Show continues to maintain its reputation as one of the biggest and best shows in the country.

Our Show is the Hot Rodders’ forum of esteemed peers and public access.
