The 2024 Ontario Hot Rod Tour is scheduled for May 30 – June 2, 2024.

The Ontario Hot Rod Tour started in 2016. This annual event takes place on the first full weekend of June each year. We welcome all hot rods, street rods, muscle cars, customs and trucks along for the ride.

The tour is anywhere between 700km and 2000km long, depending on the year. It’s a way for car enthusiasts of all ages to meet new friends and explore our beautiful province. Our goal is to introduce you to some beautiful, new places that you can go back to and explore again and again.

The tour is what you make it. We provide you with official route maps and driving directions. You can follow along with us, or you can explore a little on your own and meet back up at the next official stop. The choice is always yours.

Thanks for your interest.

    How You Can Help


    Do I have to register?2018-06-26T06:44:15-04:00

    Registered entries and their passengers will receive certain perks, as well as preferred parking at certain stops and free refreshments at others. It also helps us gauge venue requirements. Registration also gets you participant stickers, a t- shirt, and entry to a couple of events. So the answer is no, you don’t. But we think if you are going for the complete tour it would be to your benefit.

    We want to come hang out for a while. How do we find the tour?2018-06-26T06:52:55-04:00

    As we get closer to the event we will be posting a fairly accurate time table of stops etc. We will also be posting our progress in real time on our Facebook page.

    Will we all travel together?2018-06-26T06:50:13-04:00

    For the most part yes, individual groups may stop for fuel etc. at different times but generally everyone will bunches back up again at our official stops. Staying with the group is not mandatory, but it is more fun.

    What if I break down?2018-06-26T06:48:33-04:00

    It’s important to come prepared. Make sure your vehicle has been inspected before the tour . We will have a variety of tools, gaskets, fluids and parts to assist you, and a compiled list of towing companies and services along the route.

    Is food provided on the tour?2018-06-26T06:51:47-04:00

    Depending on our sponsors, there could be some light snacks and beverages offered at a couple of stops. Meals are on you. We recommend that a cooler with some picnic type food and sandwiches might be a fun way to keep the cost down.

    I’m not registered, but can you send me the host hotel information?2018-06-26T06:57:09-04:00

    No, the host hotel information is reserved for registered, paying participants.  We need to ensure that there are enough rooms for everyone in our tour group. Follow our Facebook page during the event and you’ll be able to see where we are and where we’re heading. We’ll make it easy for you to hook up with us.
