OUR VISION & MISSION
Who We Are
Rolling Into Roanoke is a memory-lane/block-party mashup that brings families and friends to a one-of-a-kind community offering its Hallmark-esque welcome to a soundtrack of shared stories and DJ-spun tunes. Each year has its own unique energy...from cars of any era, make, and model to special features like Futurliner #10, the Batmobile, and an Indy race car selfie station. There’s nothing like it in all of Indiana!
We’re passionate auto enthusiasts who encourage our fans and followers to celebrate the Village of Roanoke year ’round—as well as promote and encourage a passion for auto-centric culture and community building/events in Allen, DeKalb, and Huntington counties.
Mission & Vision
Our Mission began as a fundraiser for the Roanoke Beautification Foundation to improve common areas in the picturesque Village of Roanoke. Since then, Rolling Into Roanoke has become its own 501(c)(3) and grown to include beneficiaries who share our vision of promoting automotive history and preservation, first responders, our youth, and families and community strength.
Our Vision—with the support of our sponsors, participants, spectators, beneficiaries, vendors, virtual community, and Roanoke itself—is to provide the most fun, auto-rich, slice-of-Americana day all summer. The rest of the year we’re driven to keep the vibe alive by sharing Rolling Into Roanoke updates, outstanding area events (especially in Roanoke), car history and news, and amusing memes.
The picturesque Village of Roanoke is the perfect community for our very special car show— it embodies Hoosier transportation history, tradition and friendliness...vibrant arts and culture...plus outstanding dining and diverse shopping/services like no other local small town.
Roanoke radiates with hometown friendliness and a neighborly concern to provide a safe and pleasant place to live. A community that blends tradition and progress, Roanoke is one of the fastest growing areas of Huntington County, in part because of its close proximity to both Huntington and Fort Wayne. Its attractiveness can be found in its small town atmosphere, rural setting and public services.
With a 25-acre park in the center of town that includes baseball diamonds, tennis courts and a picnic pavilion overlooking a playground, Roanoke is the ideal setting for community and family activities like Rolling Into Roanoke.
Rolling Into Roanoke celebrates and supports all of these assets while adding its one-of-a- kind experience of themed tributes, automotive history and preservation, and family fun.
Board of Directors
We are passionate about supporting our Northwest Indiana communities. It is our privilege to support local projects and not-for-profit organizations through Rolling Into Roanoke's one-of-a-kind experience of themed tributes, automotive history and preservation, and family fun.
