Cruise the Gorge is ON! August 12-14, 2022


Kicking off with the “Neon Cruise”, Friday evening, downtown The Dalles. It’s an “open” cruise, just like back in the day, so just show up and start showing off (NO burnouts however). It starts around 7pm and extends well into the night. This is the favorite part of the weekend for many of the locals, and the sidewalks up and down 2nd and 3rd streets fill up with appreciative and enthusiastic spectators. Several downtown businesses will be having special events during the cruise. You can also pre-register for the show at Burgerville on 3rd St. between 3 and 8 pm.

Then Saturday brings the “Riverfront Car Show”, an open event. The setting, Riverfront Park, is right off of I84, exit 85. A beautiful riverside venue with very easy access and plenty of parking on the grass. Registration opens at 8am, judging until 1pm, and the Parade of Champions awards ceremony beginning at 2pm. Goodie bags and dash plaques to the 1st 225 vehicles. $20 entry up to July 31, $25 after. 40+ awards, food and specialty vendors, oldies music and plenty of raffle prizes. (View awards PDF)

Then Saturday evening features the Eagles Car Show/Dinner/Dance from 5 to 11pm at the lodge, 2006 W 7th, The Dalles.

Finally, if you want one more chance to trophy, there’s the Dufur Days Car Show, on Sunday in the Dufur Community Park, just 13 miles South of The Dalles, starting at 9am.

So, one day, two days or all three, how much fun do you want to have?

CRUISE THE GORGE 2022 VENDOR OPPORTUNITIES

We’re always looking for quality venders to take part in Oregon’s premier small-town car event, and we’d like you to consider putting the event on your schedule this year.

Cruise the Gorge was launched 28 years ago by members of the Mid-Columbia Car Club. It has grown from a modest one-day car show to an exciting weekend-long celebration of the automobile. The main event is the “Riverfront Car Show” on Saturday. 250 to 300 cars on the grass and thousands of spectators make for a full day of fun. Space rental has been reduced to just $10 ($30 with electrical hookup) to encourage more vendors to try out the event, and you can basically use as much space as you need. The show generates between $5,000 and $10,000 every year for the Rotary Scholarship Fund.

The ”Neon Cruise” Friday evening also provides vendor opportunities via local downtown businesses.

Call Gwen at 541-993-1054 or email Lincoln.gwen@yahoo.com for registration form and requirements.
