Start your engines early...enter your auto in the CruiseFest!

Calling all car enthusiasts...mark your calendar for October 7, 2017 for the 9th Annual CruiseFest on Fulton Avenue, Northern California’s premier car cruise, benefiting the California Automobile Museum.

This years' CruiseFest (major sponsor being the Fulton Avenue Association) promises to be the best one yet, with 500 classic and custom cars of every make, model and era, cruisin’ down the Avenue.
The cruise will take place on a one-mile loop of Fulton Avenue, bordered by Cottage Way on the south and Marconi Avenue on the north. The cruise will begin at 3 p.m., and participants may cruise (or park) as much as they want from 3 until 5 p.m. Everyone will then be directed to park along Fulton, and the street will be opened up for spectators to “cruise” on foot till 7:30 p.m.


New this year, some one-of-a-kind vehicles have been added to the fun, including:
- The NutMobile, Planters Peanuts “shell on wheels” is making it’s way west and will be here for CruiseFest with a special appearance by Mr. Peanut himself, who will be handing out samples and coupons to the crowd, who will also be able to take pictures in Planter’s cutouts and will be invited to shout their love for Planters, registered by a decibel meter;
- The Oscar Meyer Weinermobile crew will have a bean bag toss and pass out weiner whistles, coupons and stickers;
- Sacramentan Richard Fehlman’s amazing Circus Calliope Wagon;
- Jim Welch’s Draconos Marshall Services—2 person, 4 wheel bike with a model T body and electrically propelled paddy wagon;
- The Sacramento Ghostbusters Ecto Truck;
- The Art Mog, a restored Mercedes-Benz Unimog (originally a Belgian troop transport vehicle);
- Team American Graffiti’s cool clones from the Academy Award nominated film, including  four re-creation clones of cars featured in American Graffiti — Harrison Ford’s ’55 Chevy, Paul Le Mat’s yellow ’32 Ford coupe, Ron Howard’s ’58 Chevy, Toad’s Vespa and the 1961 Ford Galaxy cop car;
