Lewiston’s Hot August Nights kicked off in August of 1987, and began as a way to bring the Lewis Clark Valley a taste of great music and artists they never had a chance to experience before. After the initial success of the first few years, a classic car show was added to the mix. Now the Valley has its own true summer experience- a local classic car show.

Lewiston’s Hot August Nights was established by the radio station, 101.5 CAT-FM, not only to give the Valley a signature summer feature, but as a means for CAT-FM to give back to the community. In the beginning CAT-FM donated thousands of dollars to local non-profits groups; whether it was simply giving them a check, or purchasing something they desperately needed, but couldn’t find the funding for.

As time has gone on CAT-FM has grown, acquiring three additional stations, now collectively known as Pacific Empire Radio. As the company has grown, so has Lewiston’s Hot August Nights and the non-profits they have partnered with. The classic car show has turned into a fruitful fundraiser for the non-profits, with over three hundred cars from all over the US participating.

Lewiston’s Hot August Nights is truly a community event! Downtown Lewiston’s streets are closed down so all the classic cars can be displayed. The event kicks off on Thursday at the local Toyota dealership (Rogers Toyota) with a preview of classic cars on their lot. Friday night is a valley favorite with the classic car cruise. All these events lead up to Saturday’s car show and award ceremony, where old friends meet up and take in the sight of cars brought in from all over.
