Everything is starting to bloom, and we couldn’t be more excited to heat up Northern Nevada with our iconic and classic events. In our humble beginnings, participants celebrated the feeling of nostalgia with rock n’ roll and sweet hot rods— 32 years later and we are still grooving to the same tune. Since 1986, Hot August Nights has grown to become the world’s premier classic car and nostalgia event offering the biggest prize purse in the nation.
This year, we plan on kicking off Hot August Nights where it all started—Rancho San Rafael Regional Park. Join us on Sunday, Aug. 5, from 9am – 4pm for the only Official Hot August Nights Pre Kick-Off Show-n-Shine. Admire the rows of chrome, while being transported to the past with entertainment and delicious food provided by local vendors. The Hot August Nights Foundation will be holding their 50/50 raffle as the judged Show-n-Shine will have our hundreds of participants adding a little extra shine to their vehicles. Entrance is free and open to all 1976 and older vehicles. Don’t miss out, join in as we bring it full circle with the ONLY Official Pre Kick-Off party! Be there or be square!
