"The 2020 Grand Champion Fundraiser"

Sponsored by: GOScH Ford Escondido Sunday February 23rd 2020, 8:00am- 1:00pm
Up Coming event »

This marks our 21st consecutive year of the largest weekly Car Cruise on the west coast with opening event Sunday Feb 23rd, 2020, 8:00am - 1:00pm.

All Pre 1974 American cars are welcome on ANY night, and can park in any road closure except South Broadway, which is reserved for the club of the night.

One of the greatest ongoing traditions in San Diego County, Cruisin' Grand in Escondido runs for six spectacular months. This is a FREE EVENT where more than 5000 visitors and car enthusiasts each Friday Night come to check out the 500+ cars lining the streets of historic downtown Escondido. Cruise nights run April through September from5:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

We call it Hot Rod Heaven!

Cruisin' Grand is honored to be called one of the best cruises in the country. We try to keep it simple, and focus only on what works with our community history, i.e. 1973 and earlier American-made Classics, Customs, Vintage, Muscle, and Hot Rods cruising Grand Ave, just like they did 50-60- years ago, on a Friday night, hopefully shoulder-to-shoulder with a date!

We invite those same cars to park on Grand Avenue and side streets and enjoy the early 50's setting of downtown Escondido.

Events & Information

  • Parking for event-era cars is on Grand Avenue and side streets, from Escondido to Ivy Street.
