Visit Placer County

Car & Motorcycle Shows & Races

Car shows are relatively easy to find. Throughout the spring and summer months most Placer County communities host car shows ranging from antique to modified.

For example, beginning in May on the second Friday of each month in Downtown Auburn, the merchants along Lincoln Way sponsor Cruise Night. Featured are modified and restored cars from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.

The best bet for specific information regarding entry forms and the nature of the show would be through the communities local Chamber of Commerce. Select the Placer County community you wish to visit and call their Chamber. They would have all of the up to date facts relative to car events in their communities.
