August Rod Run

The 38th Annual Wheels Of Time Rod & Custom Jamboree!


August 26 – 27 – 28, 2016

The Wheels of Time Annual Rod & Custom Car Jamboree is held every year on the weekend BEFORE Labor Day weekend. I say this because this way reservations can be made, vacations taken and all round planning will be easier.

The show is held at the Macungie Memorial Park, 50 N Poplar St, Macungie, PA 18062.

We are happy to present this show for your enjoyment and to give you a chance to show off your ride and to give you a great weekend of fun, relaxation and a opportunity to meet with friends.

If you have never been here, you do not know what you are missing.

We are also happy to be able to continue helping so many local charities and helping many of the local Vo-Tech Automotive Technology graduates further their education with our Scholarship Program.

The Annual Friday Evening Cruise

Last year’s cruise through the neighboring roads and the towns of Macungie and Emmaus was a fabulous success. More cars than ever participated and I believe more people than ever watched and enjoyed watching.

The annual Friday night cruise through Emmaus will again go on for the first 200 show cars that sign up on Friday at the show. This has been a long time favorite of the community. The route will be described below.  At 6:30 pm, cars will leave Allen Organ lot and head south on Rt. 100, turn left on Buckeye Rd., turn left on Rt. 29 (Chestnut St.), go through Emmaus & turn left on Harrison, past Emmaus High School & turn right on Cedar Crest Blvd., turn left on Lower Macungie Rd., turn left on Willow Lane and back to Rt. 100, turn left back to the Park.  I hope you enjoy watching us as much as we enjoy being there for you.

Our Flea Market and Vendor Area

Find anything you need to finish that car of yours. It may even have items you never thought of using until you saw them there. If it’s automotive, you will find it here. New or old.

For The Women

Feel free to look at our Arts and Crafts area (adjoining the flea market) has everything from car jewelry to hand painted gourds, with a wide array of items in between. There is also bingo if you wish to sit and relax and try your luck winning some money.

Great Food

Food is available all day and into the evenings from various food vendors in the Food Court to help
quench your appetite.
