About the Show

The Mariposa Yosemite Hot Rod & Custom Car Show was started in 2012. Local auto enthusiasts, racers, and a love of the smell of fresh mountain air mixed with the sounds of horsepower got something started.

This is not just a car show, it’s a gathering of kindred spirits. A place where beauty of nature and machine can unfold together. We would like you to be a part of it; bring your car, friends, and family.

The event will kick off on Friday, October 14 with our Cruise Night and the car show is on Saturday, October 15. On Sunday, after the show, join us for a 40 mile Poker Run.

Come on up Friday, get in on Cruise Night, park, meet the locals, walk around beautiful Historic Mariposa. Eat good food and get some rest in one of our many fine motels, vacation rentals and B&B’s. Wake up Saturday morning and head out to the show at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds, 1 mile from Historic Downtown. Following the show on Sunday, join us for a 40 mile Poker Run through Mariposa County.

Unfortunately, due to FAA regulations, the drag races have been canceled.
