Each August, Drake Park in downtown Bend hosts the Bend Classic Car Show. During this three-day event in Bend, OR, classic cars of all makes and models made before 1979 will be displayed in a car show and win prizes. A family fun Bend, OR event, the Bend Classic Car Show is entertaining for car enthusiasts of all ages.
Friday Pre-Cruz in Downtown Bend
To kick off the long weekend, the Bend Classic Car Show organizes a downtown “Pre-Cruz” on Friday. During the Pre-Cruz, a long parade of beautiful classic cars winds its way through downtown Bend. The Pre-Cruz ends at Drake Park, which is located right on the bank of the Deschutes River.
Saturday Show ‘N’ Shine at Drake Park
On Saturday, the Bend Classic Car Show hosts Show ‘N’ Shine on the lawn in Drake Park. This is where rows upon rows of beautifully detailed classic cars made before 1979 are displayed. During the day, raffles, scavenger hunts, and contests keep visitors and car owners entertained. At night, live bands keep the fun going late into the night.
Sunday Main Cruz to Mount Bachelor
The main “Cruz” takes place on Sunday. Instead of looping through downtown Bend, however, this Cruz takes the classic cars on a route up to beautiful Mount Bachelor. There, the Bend Classic Car Show hosts Car Olympics and offers event entrants discounted lift tickets to Mount Bachelor. A no-host lunch is also served to entrants at the Pine Marten Lodge.
