Cruise begins at 4:00 pm, ending in a car show and music festival 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm on Fulton.

The California Automobile Museum has partnered with ClearPlex and the Fulton Avenue Business Association to ensure a steady regulated Cruise along the route, making this cruise the BEST in Sacramento, and quite the spectacle. Led by a siren-happy vintage fire truck, the cruise is packed full with cars from all eras! The Model T Club has made a fun addition in the past as the drivers and passengers dressed as gangsters and flappers. This non-stop cruise happens only once a year in August to complement the famed Reno event, Hot August Nights! The cruise is open to all year, make, and model vehicles.
