Nostalgia Days Cruise + Car Show


  • Grant Avenue Novato, CA United States (map)

Each year the City of Novato closes down 7 blocks of beautifully tree lined Grant Avenue for a full day while summer is still in full swing.

With the sound of classic rock β€˜n roll floating in the air, thousands of visitors enjoy free admission as they admire hundreds of vehicles of all types, including classic cars, hot rods and kustoms – just to name a few.  The afternoon is capped off with a full slate of awards given to the best in each category as well as cash prizes for Best in Show and the People’s Choice. Hundreds of local families come out to cheer for the police escorted Hot Rod Cruise through Downtown Novato on the Friday evening before the main event.
