Car Cruise Highlights

Located in El Cajon, CA, The Cajon Classic Cruise is Southern California’s largest weekly car show, attended by over 50,000 people each year. Each week will feature a different theme, including Muscle Car Mania, Vintage Vans, Flames of Main and much more. The classic cruise runs every Wednesday from April through September. Beyond that, there are two special holiday events: Hauntfest on Main in October, and Parade of Lights in December.

Visitors will again see great classic cars and enjoy fun activities! Opening Night, there will be a vintage aircraft flyover by San Diego’s Air Group One, based at Gillespie Field, to kick off the festivities. The band Breez’n will be performing, and kids will enjoy a super slide and face painting!

Centered at Prescott Promenade, the city’s downtown park, the event will spread out over several blocks, where people can enjoy the classic cars and motorcycles, DJs and live entertainment, street vendors, downtown shops and restaurants.

Trophies will be awarded each week in several categories. Classic cars 1979 or older can enter just by parking in and around the show area.

The show is presented by Sycuan Casino and the Downtown El Cajon Business Partners.
