Toppers 2021 Car Show Canceled

For the second time in it’s over-60-year history, the annual Toppers Rod and Custom Car Show has been canceled for 2021.

The Toppers had to weigh a number of realities when making this difficult decision: health concerns and the tremendous cost of the event combined with the as-yet uncertain state of the COVID-19 response, to name the big ones. While there were some other concerns, it’s simplest to say that there were too many risks in front of our desire to proceed with “situation normal” and move forward with the March event.

However, with that disappointing news delivered we are happy to report that Cruise Night 2021 is being planned around a new venue for this year. (For those unaware, Sheyenne Street will be undergoing major renovation this year in the downtown area.)

Toppers and the City of West Fargo are actively planning the alternative location and logistics to make this great event happen!

Thank you for your understanding,
Toppers Custom Car Club
