Atascadero’s Cruisin’ Weekend is back!

The weekend kicks off with the 28th Annual Hot El Camino Cruise Nite on Friday, August 20th at 6:30 p.m., continues on Saturday with our 5th Annual Dancing in the Streets in the Downtown from 5-9 pm!

Hot El Camino Cruise Nite marks the 28th year that this cruise has been in place! It’s one of the largest and most popular annual events in San Luis Obispo County and one of the City’s signature events! On Friday evening, over 400 local cruisers from the 1950’s and 1960’s come downtown from across California. These beautifully, restored antique cars cruise up and down El Camino Real from 6:30 – 9:00 pm. Over the years, Cruise Nite has grown immensely, and expanded to be a weekend event for locals and tourists alike to enjoy a full weekend of fun! For pre-registration call (805) 470-3360.


The fun continues on Saturday evening at 5 pm with Dancing in the Streets to jump-start the evening with a scaled down version from years past with local bands performing at Historic City Hall in the Downtown! In addition, there will be food trucks too who will be ready to celebrate a fun evening of music and dancing! In addition, the downtown merchants and restaurants will be open providing your favorite food and drink to serve hungry guests! 

On top of all this, it’s FREE to attend our Cruisin’ Weekend events! Food, and drink are available for purchase and a variety of local merchants will be open!
