EVENT DESCRIPTION

Beach Music Cruise-In blends bands on the beach and hot rods on the boardwalk with dancing under the stars in a jam-packed blast to the past!  Top Beach Music bands from up and down the East Coast descend on the Virginia Beach oceanfront in a nostalgic salute to the “good old days” of cool cars and hot tunes.

A three-day series of paid concerts is presented on a stage built right on the beach at 30th Street.  Evening concerts on Friday give way to a full day of entertainment, including the car show, on Saturday and more daytime concerts on Sunday.

The FREE Saturday car show feature turns the boardwalk into a local version of “Route 66,” with cars and trucks from yesterday and today competing for trophies and Best in Show cash prizes. There is a registration fee for entering vehicles in the car show. Individuals from throughout the region will display their autos. Hot rods, street machines, classic cars, and more will line the Virginia Beach boardwalk for several blocks, where thousands of car enthusiasts and families can view the vehicles in a beautiful beach setting.

To register for the car show, download and bring the completed Registration Form at the top of this page with you Saturday morning!  The pre-registration deadline has passed.  All cars must register to participate in the car show.  All vehicles must check-in at the registration lot at the corner of 18th Street and Arctic Avenue FIRST on the day of the car show.

The festival atmosphere is enhanced with a fantastic food and beverage menu available for purchase. Beer and wine, as well as non-alcoholic beverages including smoothies and soft drinks, go along with great festival food served in tents on the sand. Boardwalk sponsors and vendors overlook the beach, luring visitors from the boardwalk into the fun and sun at Beach Music Cruise-In!

Beach Music Cruise-In is the winner of the 2011 Industry Appreciation Award ("CAMMY") from the Carolina Beach Music Association.
