The Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion is a Southern California ultimate-weekend celebration of America’s love affair with the automobile and its world-famous highway, Route 66. For two days (September 20 and 21, 2019), there will be cruisin’, contests, live entertainment, and fabulous food. That makes it one of the best events of its kind.
The show is held annually each September, along the historic, tree-shaded Euclid Avenue in Ontario, California. The Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion is where classic cruisers, convertibles, hot rods, and wicked Woodies fuel a jam-packed extravaganza. This automotive festival is a family-friendly event located on historic Euclid Avenue and fills the downtown streets near Ontario’s Town Square. If you’re looking to have a great weekend, come with the family and bring your classic car. You’re guaranteed to enjoy a stroll along Euclid Avenue to admire the beauty of these fabulous vehicles from yesteryear.
Vehicle registration is now open, and is limited to the first 2,000-approved vehicles. Classic cars that are 1988 and older will be allowed to participate in the annual event. “Route 66 Cruisin Reunion is celebrating its seventh year – this family event has become one of the best classic-car shows in the nation,” said Michael Krouse, president and CEO of the Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau. The fee for preregistration is only $60.00 per vehicle, and includes access to the event for two days, a swag bag with the official participant shirt, commemorative license plate, and more.
“We are pleased to bring Foghat to the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion,” said an elated Krouse. “This timeless rock ‘n roll band is as high-energy and intense as ever – we know our classic car owners, visitors, and local community is going to love this show.” Foghat’s audience consists of fans of all ages. Kids who learned about Foghat from Guitar Hero III, the “dazed and confused” generation, and the baby boomers who bought their vinyl will join together on Saturday evening for a great show.
This annual event — held on the third weekend in September — is free to the public, and encompasses approximately twenty-two city blocks filled with cars and hot rods parking and cruisin’. Last year, the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion proved to be a huge success with over 200,000 car enthusiasts and spectators. Get ready to rumble Southern California – the Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion will be coming to town soon.
