Classic Rock Cruise In

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 music, 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 50 trophies in 24 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. Check this website starting in April for details on how to pre-register for the Cruise In. 

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 Classic Rock Cruise In Car Show was unfortunately canceled prior to opening of registration due to restrictions with large gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The proceeds from the show are shared by the Downtown Merchants and the VCC. The VCC in turn donates a portion of its share to support local charities and sponsor an annual automotive industry scholarship.
