Silverton High Car Show returns May 25

The longest running high school car show in Oregon will be making its return thanks to Silverton High School’s mechanical technology instructor, Daniel Rofelty.

“The car show was always a great showcase of students planning, organizing, and hosting the event, bringing in community and getting to interact with other like-minded adults…”  Rofelty said. 

“Due to COVID, and a change in instructors, the Car Show was last hosted in 2017, by Butch Stetson and the prior SHS Car Club… My first year at SHS was full of planning each day, and establishing curriculum and routine in the shop, and the car show would have been too big of a task to take on.”

But now, in his second year of teaching, he is excited to take it on.

“Entering into my role as an instructor, I always knew that I wanted to bring back this event,” Rofelty said. “My room is decorated with prior posters… We would love for this to be an event that continues in the years to come.”

Scheduled for May 25, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot adjacent to the Silverton Middle School gymnasium, the event will include a host of vehicles on display, live music, food trucks, vendors, tours of the SHS mechanical technology facility, awards and drawings.

“We would love everyone in the community to come out and support the Car Show… Whether you have an interest in vehicles, or not,” Rofelty said. 

“We have hopes of this being a great fundraiser for our shop to continually invest in tools and equipment with a goal of improving each student’s experience when taking any Auto Shop Class. All proceeds will go back into our program. We would also love for this to be a great networking opportunity with community members and other industry professionals to showcase what we do.”
