Classic Rock Cruise In Car Show

Every summer in June on the Saturday before Fathers Day, the Classic Rock Cruise In transforms historic downtown Castle Rock into a showplace for all kinds of cool cars, trucks and specialty vehicles. The main streets are closed for the day so that over 300 entries can be displayed by their proud owners and admired by thousands of spectators. The Classic Rock Cruise In has something for everyone – cars, shops, live bands, restaurants, attractions for the kids, Festival Park, and many specialty vendor booths. We have an entry class for everyone. Class winners are determined by a panel of experienced judges. We present over 60 trophies in 25 categories, including Survivor Award, Longest Distance Traveled to the show, Mayor’s Choice, Hottest Car (picked by the Fire Chief), Most Likely to Get Pulled Over (picked by the Police Chief), and Best of Show. It’s a fun, friendly show in a beautiful small town setting.

The show is organized and produced by a partnership of the Vintage Car Club and the Castle Rock Downtown Merchants Association. In 2013, our car show was the winner of the prestigious Downtown Colorado, Inc. Governor Award for Best Promotional Event. The car show in 2018 was a milestone year for VCC as it was the 10th Annual Classic Rock Cruise In Car Show held in historic downtown Castle Rock, Colorado. In 2020, the Car Show was canceled due to restrictions with large gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  In 2021 and 2022 we had record attendance and sold out both years within two weeks of opening on line registration.
