The Shakedown is the original weekend traditional hot rod show in Wisconsin!! Description Friday, August 8 - Saturday, August 9, 2014
Don't be confused; we are not a rat rod, art car show. Our grounds are filled with cars that would have been seen cruising the streets of America pre-1965. If you're building a car with parts that weren't available at that time, it won't get in. Please visit the website for extended rules and to pre-register your vehicle.
But the cars are really only half the story. The show grounds are known as Unionville, a reconstructed small town complete with general store, blacksmith, sawmill and operating saloon. Oh yes, the PBR will be flowing. The saloon and dance hall will be thumping both days with rockabilly music. Two stages for your listening enjoyment, playing until 11pm both Friday and Saturday nights. The Miss Symco Pin-Up Contest will be held in the bandshell on Saturday morning at 10am. Mini-bike drags are scheduled in the dirt track immediately following the pin-up contest. Vintage engine raffle to be given away Saturday at 6pm. Also vendors and swap meet running all day, both days. And last but not least, on-site camping is available.
If you attend no other hot rod shows this year, make sure you don't miss the Symco Shakedown!
That's right! Day 2 of the Shakedown, and I'm playing both days! Find me somewhere stashed around the event, set up and doing my thing!
