Emerald Coast Cruisin' Car Show

Twice a year, Aaron Bessant Park becomes a giant outdoor showroom for thousands of hot rods, classic cars
and speedsters for this three-day event! While your family weaves through dozens of rows of iconic vehicles, keep your ears alert for cash and swag giveaways. Collectors and enthusiasts drive home a vintage vehicle if they prevail in the frantic bidding at a live auction. Visitors won’t want to miss out on the numerous live bands, meet and greets and presentation shows! 

Activities include cruise- ins, concerts, parties, vendors, food, parades and celebrity appearances.
Car enthusiasts of all ages are welcome to check out the thousands of hot rods, customs, muscle cars, trucks and classics on display. 

The fall show will be held on November 7-10
