A little Frog Follies history:
Since 1975 the E’ville Iron Street Rod Club has put on a rod run for street rod owners in August. It is held at the Vanderburgh County 4-H Center in Evansville Indiana. At the first event we had 44 street rods registered. Since that time the Frog Follies has grown to an average of over 4000 street rods each year. The event became known as the Frog Follies after the club had a bull frog race at the first event. We’ve had entries from Alaska, Australia, Canada, and all 48 continental states over the years.
We provide fun for the whole family with games, activities, and dances during the weekend. Our womens world and automotive swap meet is one of the largest in the United States held in conjunction with the rod run. The commercial street rod vendors area has over 600 hundred spaces and the swap meet area has over 400 spaces each year. It has plenty of new parts to build your new street rod along with plenty of rusty parts and collectibles to satisfy you’re your appetite for automobilia.
Our concessions are owned and operated by the club so that you can keep your expenses at an honest rate and spend your money on other things you desire. There are no six dollar burgers at the Frog Follies! We have collector Frog Follies items for sale on the grounds in addition to all the free items you get with your entry. The Frog Follies is a rod run put on by street rodders for street rodders. All of our proceeds generated by the event go to numerous charities and student scholarships which help local students get into some aspect of the automotive industry and technologies.
