Rod Shows, producer of the Grand National Roadster Show and Sacramento Autorama, has been closely monitoring the current coronavirus outbreak and the government regulations. Due to the lack of clear guidelines from the state on how and when events can resume, Rod Shows has made the decision to cancel the Sacramento Autorama and the Grand National Roadster Show in 2021.
“While we would love nothing more than to host both events again this year, we can’t plan for something that is out of our control,” said John Buck, producer of the Grand National Roadster Show and Sacramento Autorama. “We have instead decided to focus our efforts on 2022 where we can again join in celebrating the amazing cars and car people who are the heart of our community.”
Rod Shows is still exploring opportunities with the Pomona Fairplex to hold an abridged event in a different format in place of Grand National Roadster Show, but no decisions have been finalized. Despite the lack of an event this year, Rod Shows extends its deepest gratitude to event sponsors, vendors, participants and fans, without whom this tradition would not exist. Show staff expect a full return of both events in 2022.
Participants and Vendors that have already registered will be contacted directly for show options.
Rod Shows will provide more information and updates as they become available. The confirmed dates for the 72nd annual Grand National Roadster Show are Jan. 28-30, 2022. The tentative dates for the 71st annual Sacramento Autorama are April 22-24, 2022.
