We're requesting that all custom vehicles that wish to partake in the car and bike show please be on location by 9:30 am. Motorcyclist will be allowed to walk your bike in and out. They are not allowed to be ridden in/ out. We ask that you please obey the rules as they're being strictly enforced. 

Show vehicles - You'll come off of Ramona Parkway and head down Lake Perris Drive. Don't pull into the main parking access lanes, stay on Lake Perris Drive , about a 1/4 mile, and you'll see signs to Gate E to gain access to the property. I will greet you with a smile and you'll pay me 10.00 per person. A parking attendant will get you placed. Please no coolers or grills; full concessions and ATMs are on property. * If for any reason you need to leave the property before the show ends please find a security member so they can assist off the property safely.

Don't pull into the main parking access lanes, stay on Lake Perris Drive , about a 1/4 mile, and you'll see signs to Gate E to gain access to the property. I will greet you with a smile and you'll pay me 10.00 per person. You can walk your bike in and out, all day long, no security assistance is required.

Mini Bike Races - We'll have a dedicated spot for you to set up if you wish. You can not drive your mini bikes through the main area of the show. Please honor this request.

Vendors - We're asking that you be on location between 7 am and 9 as the fire department needs to do a walk through before the main gates open. We need you to unload your products and park your vehicles in the dedicated vendor parking as quickly as possible. This will help us eliminate any unforeseen issues. I will be on location Friday till 3 pm if you prefer to set up your easy ups. It's a secured area.

Security - We're fortunate to be working with the USA Protection Services this year. They are very familiar with the So- Cal Fairgrounds and their policies. The NO Colors policy will be in effect and hope that you understand. We love that the Hoedown is a family friendly event and would like to keep it that way. If any issues or concerns arise please find the nearest security guards. This is the seventh year and we've been accident and incident free. 

Kutty, Jamie and I appreciate your ongoing support, and want you to have a great time. Come out, listen to great music and meet some of the best people in the industry.
Thanks, Lisa

As most of you have seen through the wonderful world of social media, Kutty's still in the hospital. What started out as a ruptured appendix has turned into an unforeseen, extensive stay in the hospital. Kutty's condition is stable but he has a long road to recovery due to his ongoing medical issues. Kutty won't be able to get back in the HK Garage for at least six weeks. Jamie and I are moving forward with the Hippy Killer Hoedown and hopefully Kutty will be on location to enjoy the day. 

Jamie has added the official Hippy Killer Hoedown 7 posters and shirts to their website. Normally they are only available day of but we are hoping to use the sales of the product to offset some of their financial worries. Jamie and Kutty Noteboom are strong, private people, and wouldn't ask for help so I'm asking for them. The way we can all help The Notebooms is go to their website,,  pre-order the Hippy Killer Hoedown 7 event shirt, poster, and treat yourself to some Hippy Killer apparel or motorcycle parts. Anything you can do is deeply appreciated.

Sponsor Highlight: 805 Beer / Firestone Walker Brewing Company

 We would like to welcome Firestone Walker Brewing Company to the Hippy Killer Hoedown. 

"It’s not a unique idea, but one that everyone on the Central Coast understands… Call something “805” and it means local. As a regional craft brewer we have always known that the closer the beer is to where it was brewed, the fresher it is. In fact since 1996 our brewery has been built on fresh, local beers for the Central Coast…. so we created a beer for the “805”.

Hope you like it"… FW

Be sure to visit the concession stands, enjoy an ice cold 805 Beer, and take a moment to visit the crew from Firestone Brewing Company. Check out their website to find 805 Beer in your neck of the woods, and give 805 Beer a follow on Facebook and Instagram for supporting the Hoedown.

Sponsor Highlight: Suavecito Pomade

We would like to welcome Suavecito Pomade to the Hippy Killer Hoedown!

"Suavecito Pomade committed itself early on to becoming a cultural phenomenon. It is not enough for us to have traditional well-crafted grooming products that work. Instead we wanted to take things a step further and dive into the custom car, motorcycle, tattoo, and barber culture as a way to reinvent the grooming product industry that had become stagnant in the previous decades.

Suavecito Pomade continues to travel weekend after weekend to shows all over the country not for profit, because doing it the way we do, there isn’t any. Instead, we do it purely to live in the culture that inspired us and, above all, we do it for our fans and followers. We want to personally meet the people that support us. We want to give them great deals they cannot find anywhere else. People at shows always ask, “How do you guys get by selling your incredible pomade and grooming products at such a discount here, where you clearly are making no profit?” Our answer is simple, “We don’t do these shows to help us get by, we do them for you guys and we do it for our own pleasure.”

Suavecito Pomade prides itself in making amazing hair pomades that are water-soluble but hold like wax and a fine line of shaving and grooming products. A company devoted to the culture and its supporters. A company not devoted to itself. No ego. This is Suavecito Pomade."

Be sure to swing by their booth and get your hair cut in the Suavecito H-Airstream during the day!

Give Suavecito Pomade a follow on Facebook, Instagram and check out their website for product information.
