Welcome To Hot Rods At The Beach

The accomplishments of the Hot Rods at the Beach Car Show over the last nineteen years are amazing! Our first car show in 1998 raised money to rebuild a 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne Nostalgic Police Vehicle for the Santa Cruz Police Department. The vehicle can be seen at local parades, festivals, and at every Hot Rods at the Beach Car Show.

Our Show in 2001 raised over $20,000.00 which was donated to the Silver Shield Foundation, (a scholarship program for the children of firefighters and police officers who lost their lives on September 11th in New York). As well as the previously mentioned donations, the Santa Cruz Police Officers Industrial Arts Scholarship fund has awarded over $75,000.00 in youth scholarships over the last nineteen years!

The Santa Cruz Police Officers Association & The Hot Rods at the Beach Event Staff would like to thank the local business owners and members of the community who generously support the Hot Rods at the Beach Car Show. The event, held in November each year, features over 300 classic and hot rod vehicles and raises over $6,000.00 to donate to the Industrial Arts Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded to eligible high school graduates each June.

A special thanks to the Hot Rods at the Beach Event Staff and the many volunteers that work so hard to make this event safe, successful and fun. We would also like to give our appreciation to the many local businesses for their generous sponsorship donations!
