Our event is and always has been the second full weekend in August. This is our 8th show in 2016.
THIS IS THE OFFICIAL SYMCO SHAKEDOWN PAGE. The same page we have had since 2008 and the same people running the show since our first show in 2009!
Camping and Vendor setup starts 8am on Aug 10 and continues Aug 11. We hold pre-show activities on both setup days. Aug 11 has our swap meet and campground stage open to the public. Come see vintage campers that day as well. Car show is Aug 12 & 13 from 8am to 11pm. Campers can stay until Sunday afternoon.
If you are new to the Shakedown, welcome! We are not a car show, we are not a music festival, we are not a vintage camper rally. We are "Summer Camp For Hot Rodders"
We try to create an atmosphere unlike any other event. 1964 and older vehicles, built like they were back in the day. A vintage camping area with nothing newer than 1970. We bring in Rockabilly, Surf Rock, Classic Country, Outlaw Country, Rock & Roll and other groups that fit the theme. The theory is, take a B&W photo at our event and we hope it is mistaken for 1959.
We do not turn any show vehicles away! With our move to a new, larger venue for 2016, we have more room than ever to park muscle cars, street rods ands anything else not falling into the old school hot rod or custom category.
