For 45 years, the Queen Wilhelmina Rod Run has attracted car enthusiasts from all over the country. Started in 1976, by the late Mark Campbell, owner of Street and Performance, Inc., the event continues to grow in popularity and attendance. Join us as more than 200 hot rods and street rods rumble through downtown Mena, the Queen Wilhelmina State Park and discover the majesty and panoramic views of the Talimena National Scenic Byway as you travel along the winding roads of the beautiful Ouachita Mountains, one of the highest mountain ranges between the Appalachians and the Rockies.

This three day event includes a parade, poker run, street dance, three chances to show and shine, and awards in 24 categories. New to the Rod Run this year is the addition of the Rat Rod category, supporting the creation of a pedal car. The pedal car will be raffled and the Rats for Autism Charity will be the beneficiaries of the proceeds from the raffle. Additionally, the CASA of the Ouachita’s organization will receive a donation from the funds raised through the poker run hosted in conjunction with the Queen Wilhelmina State Park.

A drive through photo booth and professional photographer will be available to preserve these incredible memories. A Kidz Corner offers fun and entertainment for children of all ages. There will also be food and unique vendors at the Mountain Market to satisfy your need for eats, treats, sweets and retail therapy.
