Encinitas Classic Car Nights 2021 – Last Chance!

Classic Car Night in Encinitas

Your last chance to enjoy the annual series, the Encinitas Cruise Nights of classic cars, is next Thursday, September 16th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

The theme for this final event of the summer is Classic Woodies.

OK, it’s not Carlsbad, but it’s in the next town over, and a relatively easy and quick drive for a fun time in the summer.

I imagine many people, classic car buffs and non-aficionados alike, would enjoy this series of Encinitas Cruise Nights that annually takes place on the 3rd Thursday each month from May through September.  I think this is the 19th year!

You’ll find dozens of cars, many belonging to members of the various local car clubs, parked along the main drag and on several of the side streets.

I’ve attended several times, although it’s been a number of years now, and you can’t help but ooh and aah over the Woodies, Hot Rods and other classic, vintage, and foreign cars parked along the Coast Highway 101! All are beautiful and so well maintained by their owners.

The Encinitas Cruise Nights are sponsored by the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association and take place in downtown Encinitas, on the 101 between D and K Streets.

Beautiful cars, fun people watching, live rock and roll bands, and great places to eat, drink and shop combine to make this a terrific summer evening event. What a neat way to celebrate the Southern California beach culture with rock and roll music!

Be sure to arrive early to grab the best parking; it gets pretty crowded and parking nearby gets limited with all the classic cars and with the changes in all the curb-side dining that was added during the pandemic!! Some areas of the side streets are reserved parking – don’t park there or you will get towed!

This event is a kick-off for the popular Wavecrest Woodie Meet taking place on Saturday September 18th at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.
