The Shakedown is Wisconsin's largest and oldest traditional hot rod and custom multi-day car show. It also features a huge music festival featuring over 20 bands each year. We get cars driven from all over the country. A few years back, a friend labeled it "Summer Camp For Hot Rodders" and for many, that is exactly what it is.
Exciting news!!! We are moving to Oshkosh, WI to the Pioneer Airport on the EAA grounds!!! Same dates, same hours, same show, larger venue with expanded show car area, expanded camping with permanent shower and bathroom facilities and expanded vendor areas! We are NOT changing the layout of the event, same as always. Minibike races, multiple stages with great bands, great vendors and a huge swap meet. Vintage camping will be in a very nice area next to all the activities! Everything we have brought you for the last seven years is now in a larger venue with much more than ever before, plus it is just as nostalgic as our former show grounds.

Our track record speaks for itself. You know the level of entertainment we provide and that will not be compromised! Same show, same people, different but just as charismatic venue!
There will be some new and VERY fun additions to the show:
The Shakedown is a unique gathering of cars, culture and music that just has to be experienced in person. When you get here you will understand why it is so special to so many people.
