River City Rippers

Located in Louisville, KY, River City Rippers started with a car enthusiast and his wish to be around like-minded car nuts during the pandemic. It has evolved into a club with over 1600 members locally. Connect with us on FB to get updates on the Louisville/S. Indiana car scene. The most up-to-date information will be found there for monthly meet-ups at various Cars & Coffee events around the city; Quarterly cruises down backroads, and the annual Cars in the Commons Car show benefitting local charities.

1. Do I have to pay to attend Cars in the Commons?
It is free for the public to attend the festival (cars, music, food, vendors, and fun!). Come out and see us and bring all your friends/family and a donation--See #4!

All the exhibit cars have paid an entry fee and we have SOLD OUT for car display spots in the show. (Get on our email list if you want to receive an alert for next year's show registration!)

The public should park throughout the neighborhood and walk to the square. Please be aware that some roads leading to the fountain will not be accessible. 

4. Is this for charity?
YES! We are so excited to be working with TWO fabulous charities. Proceeds from the show car ticket sales will go to Norton Children's Hospital Foundation and we are holding a donation drive for L.O.U. Louisville Outreach for the Unsheltered (SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFO!!)

L.O.U. Louisville Outreach for the Unsheltered
L.O.U. is a local organization that focuses on bringing resources to some of the most vulnerable populations in Louisville. They not only bring food and water and clothing but they also develop relationships with the unsheltered and help to connect them with the resources they need to find housing or the help they need. 

We want to help them with their summer needs!  Drop off donations to the RCR or LOU tents at Cars in the Commons and receive an entry from RCR Events to win a ticket for the NCHF Home & BMW raffle.

Norton Children's Hospital Foundation

The Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation is the philanthropic arm for Norton Children’s pediatric facilities and services. The foundation raises funds exclusively for Norton Children’s Hospital, Kentucky’s only full-service, free-standing hospital created “Just for Kids”; Norton Children’s Medical Center; and pediatric services at Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital to support programs, equipment, new technologies, clinical research, child advocacy and health education for patients, families, medical staff and the community.

Norton Children’s Hospital serves all families regardless of their ability to pay.

It takes the generosity of everyone in the community to enable Norton Children’s to be here for all children when they need us.
