Cruise, BBQ & Blues

February 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm MST


Blending science, mechanics, and design is an innovative art form in its own right. Car design is a ubiquitous but often overlooked art form that SAACA brings to light through our annual Classic Car Show.

The event invites thousands of people out to rev up the weekend with live oldies music, kids’ activities, and great food. With over 30 different classes of auto awards in Best of Show, Best Interior, Best Paint, Best Engine, and People’s Choice.

The one-day event will feature live Blues music on the main stage, a classic BBQ on the grill, and an endless supply of everything we have come to love about fast cars and classic autos!

All monies raised at the event will go directly to support SAACA’s community arts and cultural outreach programs throughout the State.

SAACA believes that every aspect of an automobile is art, from the headlights and the body of the car, to the seats and dashboard, even each little screw and bolt holding the car together. The event aims to bring the automobile to light as an art form through this spectacular community event, which also supports our Business and Arts integration initiatives.
  • Over 150 classic, sports cars and trucks on display
  • Custom designed awards by local artist John Benedict
  • People’s Choice Awards
  • A wide range of BBQ styles from local chefs and restaurants
  • Live Blues Music on the Mainstage
  • Vintage Truck and Tractor Experience by Power from the Past
  • Community Raffle
  • Children’s Art Activities
