The Shakedown is Wisconsin's largest and oldest traditional hot rod and custom multi-day car show. We also feature 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. 


Always the second full weekend in August!  Except this year, we are taking a year off.  Check back for 2018 show info.  See our Facebook Page for the official announcement. 

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. 





Our hot rod nose art panel brought $750 for the Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services of Oshkosh!

Thanks to VooDoo Larry for bringing both the VooDoo Sahara and The VooDoo Hawaiian to the 2016 Shakedown!
