Rolling Into Roanoke 2023

JULY 22, 2023, 10AM-3PM

Join us for RIR 2023 as we celebrate 10 years of automotive awesomeness! Tribute-themed cars from every year will be there along with special attractions from auto museums and private collections. You wont want to miss it!


All cars are welcome!


Pre-registration for show cars: 

$25.00 online. Pre-registration deadline is July 20th, or when sold out. 

First 300 pre-registered cars are guaranteed downtown parking. For pedestrian safety, cars registered for downtown must stay until the event concludes. 

Military personnel and veterans and/or GM employees receive $5.00 off entry fee (downtown space only).


Event day registration for show cars:

$30.00 day of show downtown if space available

$10.00 day of show in the park


Spectator admission is FREE!

Spectator parking in designated areas is $5 per car. VIP parking is $10 per car. 



With so many eras, makes and models, Rolling Into Roanoke is not a judged/points event. However, there are 25 sponsor-chosen favorites, so literally every vehicle is eligible for a specialty award! Be sure to stay until 3:00 to see if you’re a winner.
