2017 Season: Celebrating its 18th Year as the region’s premier weekly Vintage Auto Show, Cruisin’ Grand Escondido™ runs every Friday night downtown on Grand Avenue from April 7th to September 29th from 5-9pm.
One of the greatest ongoing traditions in San Diego County, Cruisin’ Grand Escondido™ runs for six spectacular months. This FREE EVENT brings more than 5000 visitors and car enthusiasts each Friday Night to check out the 500+ cars lining the streets of historic downtown Escondido.
Not only for classic car enthusiasts… everyone enjoys meeting up with friends, bringing the family out and strolling along Grand Avenue, stopping in for a bite at one of our many restaurants and people-watching on those warm summer nights. Each Friday night, awards are given to the most impressive pre-1973, American-made cars. Theme nights include “Fire Truck Night”, “Nitro Night” and “AFX Night.”

We call it Hot Rod Heaven! Cruisin’ Grand Escondido Classic Car Show
Cruisin’ Grand is honored to be called one of the best cruises in the country. We try to keep it simple, and focus only on what works with our community history, i.e. 1973 and earlier American-made Classics, Customs, Vintage, Muscle, and Hot Rods cruising Grand Ave, just like they did 50-60- years ago, on a Friday night, hopefully shoulder-to-shoulder with a date!
Each week there are three live bands on Juniper, Kalmia, and Maple. In addition to our live DJ on N. Broadway, there are fun contests such as hoola hoops and “name that tune”, with prizes. The south side of Broadway is reserved for the car club of the night. Parking for other “period correct” (1974 and older American vehicles) is available on Grand Ave., N. Maple, N. Broadway, Kalmia (North and South), and N. Juniper.
