Encinitas Cruise Nights

The streets of Downtown Encinitas will be rockin’ and rollin’ when Encinitas Cruise Nights rolls back into town! The third Thursday of each summer month, from May through September, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, hot rods, foreign automobiles, classic cars and Woodies will line S. Coast Highway 101 from D Street to K Street. Classic cars will be parked along the Hwy 101 and on side streets. Thank you to our presenting sponsor O’Reilly Auto Parts for continuing to support this beloved community event. Come to Downtown Encinitas for this unbeatable combination of historic cars, historic Hwy 101 and a national award-winning MainStreet. You will hear live music in various spots along South Coast Hwy 101. The event is open and free to the public. Every car in attendance is eligible for awards and there is no cost for displaying or viewing the cars. If historic Downtown Encinitas is not reason enough to enjoy a night out on the town, Encinitas Cruise Nights will up the ante. It is an excellent reason to spend a summer night out in a historic downtown with great restaurants and unique shops. Come early for the best parking spots because parking is limited, and dine at one of the many fantastic restaurants in Downtown Encinitas before the event “shifts into high gear.”
