Encinitas, California Encinitas Classic Car Cruise Nights invites the public and owners of rods, woodies and classic cars to cruise on down the Coast Hwy 101 for the 16th Season of summer cruise nights held on Encinitas 101 Downtown by the Beach. The Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association announces the lineup presentation of Classic Car Cruise Nights, including new nightly themes and live bands. The series, sponsored by O'Reilly Auto Parts, is held on the third Thursdays of May through September, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. 

The streets of Downtown Encinitas are rockin' and rollin' when Encinitas Cruise Nights rolls back into town the third Thursday of each summer month,  May through September. Hot rods, foreign automobiles, classic cars and Woodies  line South Coast Highway 101 from D Street to K Street. Classic cars are parked along the Hwy 101 and on side streets. 

You may hear live music in various spots along South Coast Hwy 101. 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.

Encinitas 101 welcomes all classic and vintage vehicles to this free monthly event where drivers take spaces along Coast Highway 101 and in adjacent parking lots, or simply cruise up and down the main street.

Events are not guaranteed. It is your responsibility to confirm before going.

Historically this is the largest single gathering of woodies in the country, though Santa Cruz and So Cal will give them a run for their money. The San Diego Club puts on an amazing event to help close out the Woodie season.
