The Red Square Charity Car Show is open to vehicles of all makes & models – all that we ask is that your car or bike is in clean, running condition with no leaks.
All Red Square Car Show events are free to attend with a $5 suggested donation for spectators.
Of course! All well-behaved pets are welcome.
Our current vehicle limit on the bricks is 130 total.
There are a few platforms & stair cases within Red Square that are perfect for sitting, but if you want to find some shade, we recommend bringing a folding chair or camping stool.
If you wish to show a vehicle at an upcoming Red Square Car Show, You must make a direct donation to PAWS via the designated form linked on the home page, this would count as registration. In the past, “Early Bird” vehicle registration is subject to a one-time $60 donation, while day-of participants must donate $100 in person. As RSCS is a non-profit, 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Progressive Animal Welfare Society!
The show officially starts at 12 P.M. – if you’re showing a vehicle, please arrive for check-in promptly at 11:30.
We will have a selection of food trucks at the show for concessions. Want to get your food out on the bricks? Contact us for details.
Given the amount of pedestrian foot traffic, we cannot permit vehicles in the show to leave early. All registered show vehicles must wait to leave when the show ends at 4 PM or once the show is officially called.
If you do not register your vehicle online before the show date & the show sells out, unfortunately we cannot guarantee you a spot on the bricks to show your vehicle. Once all registered vehicles are in place, we must get approval from the University to let in more cars. If you know you want to show, be sure to sign up as soon as registration opens!
If you would like to request a refund, please contact PAWS.ORG directly or reach out to your bank about processing a charge back & let us know that you will not be in attendance.
Unfortunately we do not have a system in place for transferring show vehicle registration, and since the show has a fixed vehicle limit set by UW, we cannot make any exceptions to this rule. All vehicles must be registered directly by their owner. If you would like to refund your donation, please contact PAWS.ORG directly or reach out to your bank about processing a charge back & let us know that you will not be in attendance.
The official Red Square Car Show commemorative shirts are typically only made available to registered show participants as a gift for their donation to PAWS. If you’d like to make a donation to PAWS in exchange for one of the limited edition shirts, shoot an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Street parking around UW’s campus is free on Sundays, but space tends to go quick. We don’t have a designated overflow lot, however on-campus parking information is available online here.
Unfortunately we cannot accommodate car carriers on the bricks as space is quite limited. If you need to trailer your vehicle, please utilize one of the on-campus lots for visitors. Parking information is available online here.
We will send out a pre-show e-mail to all registered participants the Thursday before the show containing all the necessary details.
Unfortunately not, as Red Square Car Show t-shirts are special ordered per participant based on the size that’s submitted through the registration tool. We don’t typically have extra, but if one doesn’t get claimed it may be available for a small donation at the end of the show.
