Rose City Round-Up #14

June 16th-17th at the shilo inn (portland airport)

The Rose City Round-Up is a celebration of the hot rod lifestyle here in Portland, OR. We are hoping that each year's event will be larger than the previous years, and continue to bring something special to the city of Portland. This event brings a mix of Pre-1965 Cars, Pre-1980 Motorcycles and Pre-1980 Bicycles, as well as great music, food, and vendors. It all happens on the 3rd weekend in June every year. This year the main show will be held at The Shilo Inn on Saturday, June 17th 2023, from 9am until 3pm. There will also be an event held on the Friday night prior to the show (June 16th) as well as after the main car show has concluded on Saturday (June 17th). For a complete list of events please check out the schedule online.

*Each year of the show, we choose a charity to give proceeds to - this year's charity is Call To Safety (formerly Portland Women's Crisis Line). From the Call To Safety website: Working to fulfill our mission of ending domestic and sexual violence by providing confidential support services and education to empower our community, Call to Safety provides a comprehensive 24/7 crisis line, follow-up advocacy for survivors, support groups, community outreach and education, and sexual assault medical advocacy.

We invite you to join us in 2023, you won't be disappointed!

The Rose City Round-Up sends our most heart-felt thoughts to those that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wondering about COVID-19 restrictions? We aren't going to check or ask you to wear a mask, or look for vaccine cards. The mask mandate is no longer in effect, but some folks will still be more comfortable with wearing a mask. Whether you choose to or not, that is your business.

This means that no matter if you agree or disagree with a guidance (or lack of), MASKS ARE OPTIONAL! We know that people have MANY different feelings about this so we are asking you to keep your political opinions to yourself, and DON'T BE A DICK to others. No shaming folks who choose to wear a mask, or who choose not to.

We GET to have a show this year with music, vendors, a restaurant and bar...all at a hotel that has a pool and hot tub. Let's have a good time!

Now, start building those cars/bikes and we'll see you on Father's Day weekend!
