Rose City Round-Up

June 20th at Portland international raceway (Pir)

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

Though it is uncertain when this ordeal will end, the Driven Dead Car Club is still planning this event and are optimistic that it will take place as scheduled. The only way the show will be cancelled is if the venue is unable to open!

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

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 Portland International Raceway on Saturday, June 20th 2020, from 8am until 5pm, with events planned for both Friday and Saturday evenings. 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 The Clackamas Bookshelf. In addition to proceeds from the show, we will also be accepting books for donation to the charity. They accept all books except encyclopedias and dictionaries. New and gently-used children’s books will go directly to kids who need them; books for adults (literature, cookbooks, etc.) will be sold to help fund their mission.

We invite you to join us in 2020, you won't be disappointed!
