Rods N Rhodies Car Show Sponsorship Opportunities

The Rods N Rhodies Car Show and Benefit is an event that developed in 2007 by Merchants of Old Town with a vision to market and promote the Old Town area. In 2011, MOOT merged with the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce who continued with that vision. In 2018 Rods N Rhodies became its own entity, run by volunteers, with a renewed vision to support community projects and provide automotive assistance to those in need, with a fun filled weekend featuring classic and creative restoration of automobiles.
