Classic Cars, Live Music & Summer Evenings

~  Encinitas 2023  ~

 

2023 is the 24th season of the popular Encinitas Cruise Nights.

 

This popular series takes place on the 3rd Thursday of each summer month(May through September) from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. There are 3 classic car nights remaining. The next event is July 20, followed by August 17 and September 21.

 

Classic car buffs and non-aficionados alike seem to enjoy the Classic Car Nights on main street in downtown Encinitas. We’ve been several times and it’s always great fun. The auto eye candy is amazing!

 

No doubt there are lots of oohs and aahs with dozens of Hot Rods, Woodies and other classic, foreign and vintage cars to gawk at!

 

 

 The Encinitas Classic Car Cruise Nights are sponsored by the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association. The events are held on historic Route 101 (the main street) between D and K Streets in downtown. All cars are eligible for awards, with the ceremony beginning around 7:15.

 

What could be more fun in this classic beach town in the summer? Beautiful cars, people to watch, live music at 3 venues, and abundant dining and shopping mean fun for all. What a fun way to celebrate Southern California beach culture along with rock and roll music!

You’ll probably find some merchant specials, too.

 

Come early to snare the best parking. It tends to get crowded and parking on the main street in some areas is restricted with reserve parking for the car clubs!

I am not much of a car buff but I would still enjoy seeing all of the unique cars and how much their owners love them.

Jeff, sure sounds like a fun event, and has been a while since I have been to a car show.

Joan Cox It would be hard to not enjoy this event even if you are not a car lover.

We had a great time the few times we went, although it's been a few years.

Good morning, Jeff... I'm not a car "enthusiast." But classic cars do get my attention and this is something I'd definitely attend if I were nearby.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker  I can't call myself a car enthusiast either, but this was fun to attend in the past.

Jeff Dowler, CRS  what an amazing time that should be. My dad would bring old cars like that home and restore them. They always had such a wonderful smell to them

You have to be impressed with anyone who takes on restoring classic cars. Some of them are truly amazing.

So did you ever get to ride in any of your Dad's cars?

Jeff great timing for this post.  We had our annual car show on Main Street today.  Main Street was lined with gorgeous cars as well as several of the side streets.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - You put a lovely video together, and I love the music.  I have always been a car buff.  If we lived in the area, Rick and I would be there to check out all the car eye-candy.

Hi Jeff- this is right up our alley. When we were in Delray Beach, we attended many along the coast.  It's interesting to see how much care goes into these classics.
