GOT DOG? GET DOG SWAG!

That’s right, George Lucas actually wrote his cult classic American Graffiti about his high school experiences growing up in Modesto. So now Modesto is proud to celebrate the most robust car culture in Northern California.

Imagine 1,400 cars lining the streets of downtown and extending a mile down the main drag. That’s how the festivities kick off for over 20 years on a Friday night in June.

The Classic Car Parade, with over 10,000 spectators lining Modesto McHenry Ave and J Street, is followed by music in downtown that brings you back to sock hops, root beer floats and varsity jackets!

The weekend continues with the Graffiti Show featuring over 1,000 classic cars on display, live music, beer gardens, a craft fair and games for kids of all ages.

The festivities continue all month long throughout the city with classic car shows almost every night from Vintage Faire Mall to McHenry Village and all points in between.
