The Racine Zoo is excited to host the 24th Annual Car, Truck, and Bike Show. The show takes place Sunday, August 18, 2019 from 9am to 4pm at the Racine Zoo, 2131 N. Main Street, Racine, WI. This year, the show is presented by Landmark Credit Union and Evinrude.

With such a long-standing event, we’d like to uncover a little history about the show. The Racine Zoo was approached by a local car club to hold an annual car show as a fundraiser for the Zoo 24 years ago. It has been growing every year since then. What makes this car show unique is its location—on a zoo campus along a beautiful lakefront. A lot of car show enthusiasts make a point to attend this show, and for some, exclusively this show every year. There are entrants that get to the show early and know exactly where they want to park their vehicle. For them, this show has become an annual tradition. Entrants get along really well despite the competition between them to win awards. Many guests coming to the show are not necessarily vehicle enthusiasts, but those wanting a fun day out with the family.

Join hundreds of other car, truck, and motorcycle enthusiasts during this family-friendly annual event. This year’s show will include a special display of boats and tractors as well. There will be over 75 different awards, including “Best in Show”.

Racine Zoo will have a variety of beverages and food available for purchase during the event. No outside liquor is allowed on property.

Enjoy music all day long while taking a stroll around the show! There will also be a 50/50 raffle.

Vehicle registration is available online at or at the Racine Zoo Administration office, 200 Goold Street, Racine, WI. Early vehicle registration is $15 and day-of vehicle registration is $20. Day-of registration takes place from 8am to 11am. All show ballots must be cast by 1pm. Awards are announced at 3:30pm.

Guest admission is $5. Racine Zoo members and children two years and younger get in for free.

The event is held rain or shine.
