In 2003, Wasatch Rods & Customs Car Club held a Tuesday “cruise night” that involved 60 vintage cars cruising from Layton to Ogden. The vehicle owners hung out and ate in the restaurants. It was the best-attended cruise night the club had ever hosted. Everyone loved the destination! What a great scene -old cars parked in front of even older buildings! The businesses loved the extra traffic!
A group of friends decided to capitalize on the success of the cruise night and created the Historic 25th Street Car and Motorcycle Show in 2004. Because the show takes place on the asphalt, it was decided to hold an evening show to avoid the heat. The organizers also agreed that the show would be done to benefit the businesses and that it would last only 4 hours on a Friday night. That quickly became a recipe for success! The car show date is the busiest day of the year for the local restaurants, surpassing Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving and Easter!
Proceeds from the show benefit the local homeless shelter, Lantern House, and also help the Historic 25th Street Business Association to produce additional community events. Business participation is paramount to the success of the show. 30 business owners volunteer each year to select winners and provide their prizes. Ogden City officials and show sponsors also get involved in selecting winning entries.
The show has grown to the point that the side streets have to be closed to traffic to accommodate the 400 vehicles. The businesses stay open late. Outside vendors are not allowed so that the economic impact is felt by the entrepreneurs who have worked so hard to create the distinctive business district.
Thank you to the founders and current (volunteer) producers of the show: Steve & Carolyn Brierley, Alan & Marilyn Clark, Bob & Weezie Eames, Darrell & Donna Kersey, Mike & Joan Tuttle, Joe & Janice Christiansen
