Every summer, 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, hot rods and trucks. 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 Cruise In has something for everyone - cars, shops, live music, restaurants, attractions for the kids, and many specialty vendor booths. We have an entry class for everyone. Class winners are determined by a panel of experienced judges. In 2015 we presented 35 trophies in 19 classes, including a Mayor's Choice, Hottest Car (picked by the Fire Chief) and Most Likely to Get Pulled Over (picked by the Police Chief). 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 next year's Cruise In.
The show is organized and produced by a partnership of the Vintage Car Club and the Castle Rock Downtown Merchants Association, and in 2013 was awarded the Governor's Award for Downtown Excellence as the Best Promotional Event in Colorado. Every year, the VCC donates a portion of the proceeds from the show to support local charities. For 2016 the local charity is Ponderosa High School Automotive Technologies
