Friday, Sep 25th many participants and show-goers will arrive in Grafton, IL, and we will have an informal meet and greet gathering at one of the many fine establishments in town in the late evening. (details and lodging recommendations to be announced)
Saturday, Sep 26th will be the Build-Off Kick-Off at the Hawg’s Pit in Grafton. This will be an all-day car and bike extravaganza featuring live music, vendors, food, a pin-up contest, High Roller racing (adult big wheels!), and a ton of other activities and entertainment. Saturday night will feature more live music, food, and a good old fashioned bonfire.
Sunday, Sep 27th, all rat rods and bikes are welcome to join us at sunrise as we cruise the scenic riverside drive to Shapiro Steelfest into St Louis, MO. The drive will take around 45 minutes.
Shapiro Steelfest gates open up at around 8am. Steelfest features live music, free food and soda, and one hell of a cool car and bike show. Build-Off awards will be announced in the afternoon to conclude the weekend’s festivities. (And of course you can expect the infamous Steelfest burnouts all day). Both events welcome all pre-1980 cars and trucks, and bikes of all types. There is no entry fee for either event.
