Show and Go turns Downtown Riverside into Hot Rod Heaven

The annual car show that draws thousands and raises money for local charities returns downtown on May 4.

Stater Bros’ Charities, Riverside East Rotary Club, and Old Farts Racing have teamed up again for the annual Show and Go car show, on May 4, in Downtown Riverside. Hot Rods, Lowriders, and muscle cars will take over the city streets for the family-friendly event. Festivities kick off at 7 a.m. with a pancake breakfast. Food and car-themed merchandise vendors will be present throughout the day.

Show and Go has become a staple of the Spring season in Riverside. Hundreds of hot rods draw thousands of people to look at the cars and listen to the roar of the open-pipe cruise down and around Market Street. The event raises money for local charities and taps into our “they don’t make ‘em like that anymore” nostalgia.

Admission is free for spectators. If you would like to register a vehicle or sponsor a trophy, information can be found at
