Oakboro Cruise-In

Location: Downtown Oakboro, NC
Time: Every forth Friday from 5:00 to 10:00 pm

The town of Oakboro has a population of 2,000, but when the forth Friday arrives the population triples in size!

Downtown Main St. and side streets were completely filled with classic cars! The show offically starts at 5:00, but classic car owners eager for the perfect parking spot start parking their vehicles at 3:30. It was amazing to see enthusiast of all ages coming out to view their favorite classic car. Classic car enthusiast from 75 miles away travel the long distance to share the stories with fellow classic car owns. The streets were crowed with spectators, and had the unique atmosphere of a "Classic Car Festival."

For me, it was exciting to see the participation of our great hobby, and the cruise-in proves these beautiful classics bring people together. The growth of our hobby is one of the most important issues surrounding the classic car hobby, but after seeing the amazing participation of enthusiast I'm more confident the hobby will continue to grow.

Congratulations to the organizers of this great event! Please visit for additional information on the Oakboro Cruise-In.
