Bring your friends and family, and see more than 250 muscle cars, custom cars, hot rods, trucks and motorcycles from around the community and the region. There is even a space for custom bicycles.

Celebrate America’s love of the automobile among the historic refurbished buildings of Oregon City’s 170-year-old downtown. In previous shows, cars have come from as far away as Reno, Seattle, Bend, Prineville, and many other towns in Oregon and Washington.

Admission is free for spectators, and the event is geared for the entire family. Major sponsors Busch Family Furniture and Red Barn Car Wash/Stein Oil are joined by many other local businesses in making this event possible. Cruising music from the 1950s and ‘60s will be played throughout the day by a group of deejays. Food and beverages will be available at Liberty Plaza and from numerous downtown restaurants and taverns.

All proceeds from the event go to support charities in the Oregon City area. Some of these include H.O.P.E., Meals on Wheels, needy seniors via the Pioneer Center, summer-lunch programs for disadvantaged children at Oregon City schools, Clackamas Women’s Services, Oregon City Children’s Services and scholarships for students in the automotive program at Clackamas Community College.
