Hot Rods and Rock & Roll

Saturday, September 15 • 3 to 7pm

Join 106.1 The River for the 22nd annual Hot Rods and Rock & Roll! The free car show gets underway at 3pm with the free concert to follow at 7pm, featuring Rick K. & the Allnighters! You can also purchase the 22nd Anniversary Hot Rods and Rock & Roll t-shirt, as well as pick up some freebies from The River.

106.1 The River will be broadcasting live from downtown during the car show. We invite everyone to bring a lawn chair and maybe a light jacket for the concert.

For Car and Cycle Owners:

If you’re bringing a vehicle to be in the show, first go to the Staging Area in the parking lot across from the jail between 2nd & 3rd Streets. Vehicles will be directed into the show area by staff, 10 vehicles at a time. Vehicles will be brought up Franklin Street and turn left at 7th Street to enter the show. We will get everyone parked in the event in a timely manner and before 3pm.  There’s no sitting on the sidewalks. Car owners are asked to sit between their vehicles and the sidewalk this year.

Hot Rods and Rock & Roll has permission to use that parking lot beginning at 9am. Remember, this is a free show and we hope everyone has a great time. There will be extra police on hand this year.

Now, in its 2nd year is Mann’s Harley-Davidson Cycle Street. This is 4th Street between Washington and Jackson. We will be parking motorcycles in this area until it’s full. To register to have your bike parked here, you MUST pick up a registration form at Mann’s HD in Edinburgh before noon on Friday, September 14th. Registered motorcycles will be allowed to drive into this area to be parked between 12:30pm and 2pm the day of the show ONLY!

While visiting the car show, check out  the wonderful restaurants
and places to eat in downtown Columbus.
